Super supporters help out at rugby club event

Ark Cancer Centre Charity was delighted to have a stall at Basingstoke RFC's Community Open Day on Sunday - and we'd like to say a big thank-you to fab supporters Debbie Loveridge and Sharon Allen.

Debbie, pictured right, who runs Ark Our Partner corporate supporter Perpetual Flowers, and Sharon, who is group finance director at fellow Ark Our Partner corporate supporter Centerprise International, and a long-standing key member of Basingstoke RFC, joined Mark Jones, Ark's director of fundraising and communications, on the Ark stall for the event, which celebrated Basingstoke RFC's 70th anniversary.

Thanks to everyone who came along and chatted to our Ark team, and thanks to all who supported our fundraising efforts, including everyone who bought a raffle ticket for a Pimm's hamper prize, that was kindly donated by Debbie's company.

Congratulations to all at Basingstoke RFC on the milestone anniversary. Ark is proud and honoured to be the Charity of the Year of club president Dr Steve Tristram, and we are grateful to Steve and all of the club members for their help and support in raising funds for, and awareness of, Ark and the cancer treatment centre project that the charity is raising £5million for.
