In addition to supporting Peters & May Foundation Charities, Paul Tate responds to Wessex Cancer Trust’s declaration of crisis with a promise of raising funds for the Wessex Cancer Trust during London Marathon run.
Recently, Wessex Cancer Trust released a crisis appeal for financial help:
“This year we’ve seen a 30% rise in the number of people using our Cancer Support Centres. We’ve also seen a considerable drop in charitable income, particularly from gifts in wills, and our charity shops, which has resulted in a serious gap in funding that we’re struggling to bridge. We must raise £600,000 by 31st January 2020 or we face the harsh reality that our services will no longer be there for you when you need us."
Aiming to meet this target, Paul will be collecting funds ahead of his Marathon attempt to provide short term support for the trust. Following the event a proportion of donations raised being donated to other charities supported by the Peters & May Foundation. As time runs out for fundraising, Paul implores people to donate whatever possible.
