Une Grande Nuit is a grand success

Magnifique! – a fabulous French-themed evening celebrated the awesome achievements of a terrific team of cycling fundraisers and saw them smash the £200,000 barrier in support of Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

Une Grande Nuit was organised by the Arkriders, in partnership with the Apollo Hotel, in Basingstoke, to mark the success of three years of fundraising by the bike-riding supporters, and to pull in more money for the charity, which is raising £5million towards a new NHS cancer treatment centre in Basingstoke.

Jane's recipe for success will help Ark

It's a big week for BBC MasterChef 2016 champion Jane Devonshire who is a long-standing supporter of Ark Cancer Centre Charity and the NHS cancer treatment centre project.

Today sees the launch of Jane's first book. Hassle Free, Gluten Free: Over 100 delicious, gluten-free family recipes is published in association with Coeliac UK, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary. 

Sian's art for Ark's sake is set be an auction winner

She made her mark in Ark Cancer Centre Charity’s major fundraising event of 2017 – and talented artist Sian Storey is making a big contribution to this year’s showcase event.

Basingstoke-based artist Sian has very generously created a work of art for Une Grande Nuit – and this will be one of the prizes that will be auctioned at the September 22 event.

Ark wonder woman Anna gets her message across

She's cycled hundreds of miles, run half-marathons, and abseiled 100 metres down a Hampshire landmark - so there's no doubt that Anna O'Shea is an Ark wonder woman.

Anna, sales and lettings manager at Winkworth Estate Agents, in Basingstoke, has really gone the extra mile to support Ark Cancer Centre Charity and the NHS cancer treatment centre project it is helping to fund.

Arkriders beat the heat and raise over £8,750

The heat was well and truly on last weekend – but the fabulous Arkriders once again proved they’ve got what it takes when it comes to rising to a cycling challenge to support Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

They’ve piled on the pedal power from John O’Groats to Land’s End, London to Brighton, and from Basingstoke to Paris – and now they’ve added the Bournemouth Beano to their list of achievements.

Beaufort Financial team pile on the pedal power

And they're off...members of the fabulous Beaufort Financial team have started piling on the pedal power as they take part in a static Beano bike challenge.

As part of the build-up to the Beaufort Financial-sponsored Arkriders Bournemouth Beano event on July 14-15 – which is raising money for Ark Cancer Centre Charity – members of the team will be clocking up the miles on a static bike from July 9-13.

Une Grande Nuit will be fantastique!

They are fabulous supporters of Ark Cancer Centre Charity - and now the Arkriders and Apollo Hotel have teamed up to organise Une Grande Nuit.

This very special event, taking place at the Apollo Hotel on Saturday, September 22, will be the major fundraising event for Ark in 2018.

We are delighted that the 192-guest event is a sell-out - thank you so much to everyone who has bought a ticket.

Thanks so much to the Arkriders committee, Paul Fearon and his team at the Apollo Hotel, and many other Ark supporters who have worked hard to make this a night to remember.

Fabulous Arkriders gear up for latest challenge

They've piled on the pedal power from John O’Groats to Land’s End, London to Brighton, and from Basingstoke to Paris – and now the fabulous Arkriders are all geared up for another challenge in support of Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

The Arkriders have collectively raised nearly £180,000 for Ark Cancer Centre Charity’s £5million campaign to help fund a much-needed new cancer treatment centre in Basingstoke.

Ark supporters honoured at A Place to be Proud of Awards

Congratulations to Ark Cancer Centre Charity supporters who celebrated well-deserved success and recognition at the 2018 A Place to be Proud of Awards.

Ark Our Partner supporter Champion Group won the Business and the Community award following a public vote, and fellow Ark Our Partner supporter Lamb Brooks was one of the other two finalists in the same category.

The fabulous Arkriders, who have so far raised more than £170,000 for Ark, were also nominated for awards at the 2018 event and were among the finalists in the Community Project category.

Ark supporters take fundraising to a new height

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again – and that’s exactly what 18 fabulous Ark Cancer Centre Charity supporters did as they came, saw and conquered an abseiling challenge at a Hampshire landmark.

High winds on April 7 meant a team of intrepid fundraisers had to reschedule their attempt to abseil down the Emirates Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth – so on Sunday, May 13, the determined team returned and completed the feat in style.
