Due to the success of our fund raising , the charity has over £90,000 to use for the benefit of Head and Neck cancer patients- all is used for the patients.
It was discussed and agreed by the trustees, that a management committee should be set up to oversee the support group, look how to distribute small grants as well as fundraising. Two consultant colleagues – Sandeep Berry and Liam Addy have agreed to set up this group which will represent all people who look after our patients and we will also be looking for at least two patient representatives .
We will update this in the very near future but please refer to the small grants policy document and application form
Great news- John Vlahos- one of our patients but also a trustee has managed to get a place on the 2020 London Marathon. All the monies raised will be for Face up.
