Legal eagles have a ball and raise £22,500 for Ark

Legal eagles from a well-known Basingstoke law firm and fellow Ark Cancer Centre Charity supporters really had a ball at a black-tie event that raised £22,500 for the good cause.

Oakley Hall was the setting for a night of fun and fundraising as Clarke & Son Solicitors held a glittering Charity Ball – the firm’s most ambitious event of a three-year campaign to raise £50,000 for the charity.

Lots to keep talking about!

It was the final chapter of the Sitting With Jane event, but two weeks after the bookbench auction, it's great that people are still talking about the trail and benches – and today Ark Cancer Centre Charity is pleased to confirm how much each lot went for.

Phillips Solicitors team will run for Ark

A 50-strong team from Basingstoke Half-Marathon headline sponsor Phillips Solicitors will be going the extra mile to raise funds for Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

Phillips Solicitors has recruited a great show of support for this year’s event on Sunday, October 1.

While all of the runners will have individual goals, the team will have a collective target – and that is to raise £5,000 for Phillips Solicitors’ chosen Charity of the Year which is Ark.

Sitting With Jane auction raises more than £70K for Ark

The Sitting With Jane event had a very happy ending as the BookBench auction raised nearly £100,000 – delivering a massive boost to Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

A Wild in Art event, delivered by Destination Basingstoke and in association with Festival Place, thousands of people enjoyed going around the Sitting With Jane public art BookBench trail between June 17 and August 30 – and the popularity of the benches, which celebrated the life of local author Jane Austen, was reflected in a very successful auction.

Sitting With Jane bookbench auction looms

So, today's the day – the grand finale of the marvellous Sitting With Jane event as 22 of the bookbenches are auctioned to raise funds for a much-needed cancer treatment centre.

A ‘Wild in Art’ event, delivered by Destination Basingstoke and in association with Festival Place, thousands of people enjoyed going around the Sitting With Jane bookbench trail between June 17 and August 30, and the popularity of the bookbenches has been reflected in demand for tickets to the auction.

Clarke & Son round up more support for Ark

They are great Our Partner supporters of Ark Cancer Centre Charity – so another round of applause please for Clarke & Son Solicitors for organising a charity rounders evening.

The fun contest saw four teams taking on each other in a round-robin contest at Basingstoke RFC's Down Grange ground.

A team from RSM Basingstoke were the overall winners and were delighted to take home the winners' wine.

Phoenix Wealth team are on their way

They're on their way!

At just after 8am, a 13-strong team from Phoenix Wealth set off on a one-day bike ride from Basingstoke to Birmingham - and Ark Cancer Centre Charity will be one of the charities to benefit from the funds that are raised.

The Basingstoke-based staff at Phoenix - formerly AXA Wealth - have been supporting Ark as their Charity of the Year during 2016 and 2017, and the latest fundraising feat will see three members of the team piling on the pedal power for Ark, while 10 other colleagues from Wythall raise money for their office's chosen charity.

Tickets for Sitting With Jane auction sold out

On Friday, the Sitting With Jane bookbenches will be going, going, gone – and while there is still time to register to bid online, tickets to the actual auction evening have now sold out. 

A ‘Wild in Art’ event, delivered by Destination Basingstoke and in association with Festival Place, thousands of people enjoyed going around the Sitting With Jane bookbench trail between June 17 and August 30, and the popularity of the bookbenches has been reflected in demand for tickets to the auction.

Helpful advice for Sitting With Jane bidders

There are just three more sleeps to go before the Sitting With Jane bookbench auction – so there's no better time to answer some questions for would-be bidders.

A ‘Wild in Art’ event, delivered by Destination Basingstoke and in association with Festival Place, thousands of people enjoyed going around the Sitting With Jane bookbench trail between June 17 and August 30, and it is hoped that the popularity of the bookbenches will now be reflected in a successful auction for the charity partner.
