One 2 Three
Patrick Sherring

To commemorate his 84th birthday on June 4th, together with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, Graham has decided to raise funds in support of Essex people and families having difficult times.  He has chosen

 

 

Graham stated the importance he felt in relation to the work of these local charities that needed the support of local people as volunteers and fundraisers. This was emphasised by Holly Butler who phoned in to the studio to chat about the work of the Helen Rollason Cancer charity. She outlined the ways that this charity seeks to support people who have had a positive cancer diagnosis. She stated that 50% of people would get such a diagnosis in their life time. However, many will not be terminal. Graham told us of the passing of his first wife Helen over twenty years ago and how the charities help not just the sufferer, but also provide great support to their families. Graham is seeking to raise £5,000 and can be supported through www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/graham-hart-3

The money raised will be divided equally between the four charities. A jubilee themed cake is also being donated to Sanctus so that the homeless and vulnerable people of Chelmsford can remember this time with some pleasure.
