WOMAC ANNOUNCES CHOSEN CHARITY AND 2020 FUNDRAISING PARTY DETAILS

Women On the Move Against Cancer (WOMAC) is delighted to announce it will support Dimbleby Cancer Care in 2020 with fundraising to begin at its annual party on Tuesday 11 February 2020.

Taking place between 18:30 and 22:00, with more than 150 guests expected to raise awareness for a very worthwhile cause, the event will be held at The Vestibules, Freemasons’ Hall, in London. Early party arrivals will have the opportunity to view the magnificent Grand Temple between 18:30 and 19:30. The party will host a buffet supper and the popular raffle and tombola will return to offer first-class prizes in return for guests’ generous donations for WOMAC’s 2020 charity.

The Dimbleby Macmillan Support Centre is a service based at Queen Mary’s Hospital in Sidcup. As part of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, it offers specialist information and support to local people affected by cancer. The charity was set up in 1966 in memory of renowned broadcaster Richard Dimbleby and is based at Guy’s Cancer Centre, London. Its mission is to help make life better for people facing cancer in the UK today.

Dealing with a cancer diagnosis can be difficult not only for the person with cancer, but for their family and friends as well. Finding the right information or the right person to talk to can often make living with cancer that bit easier. The service is staffed two days per week by a cancer information clinical nurse specialist (CNS), offering a range of information on all aspects of living with cancer.

“We were so happy when WOMAC contacted us to offer its support in 2020 and are really hoping that the fundraising event in February will be successful in raising awareness about the value of keeping cancer patients and their families informed on how to deal with the diagnosis”, said Dr Sue Smith, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Dimbleby Cancer Care.

“I am absolutely delighted with WOMAC’s choice to support Dimbleby Cancer Care in 2020. It means a great deal personally. Dimbleby Macmillan is such a friendly and caring charity that has been such a support through my health troubles last year. I have been fortunate to witness at first-hand how helpful and supportive it is to those experiencing a seismic time in their lives”, said Sue Baker, who was affected by cancer.

Georgia Fox, Chair of WOMAC, added: “We are thrilled to support Dimbleby Cancer Care in 2020, and at such a unique venue. Charities like this prove that apart from treatment patients and their families need support and information in the fight against cancer. We look forward to welcoming you all to the party in February."
