Raising A Glass For Two Cancer Charities

04/02/2019

Balfours has joined with Tanners Wine Merchants to host a wine tasting next month to raise funds for two Cancer charities.

Now we would like you to join us on Wednesday 13th March – when we will be raising funds for Cancer Research and the “Mad about Harry,” campaign.

Balfours Property sales office manager, Abigail Barker, says: “Cancer is something too close to all of us, whether it be family, friends or colleagues. We have also chosen to support Harry’s desperately urgent appeal – Mad about Harry.”

Harry, ten years old, has battled aggressive cancer twice in four years, and was in remission until last November. This year he has undergone brain surgery to remove a tumour and endured further chemotherapy, his parents have been told his only hope is pioneering treatment, in New York.

Harry has been offered a place, but for his parents the pressure is on, the treatment costs half a million pounds and Doctors have recommended Harry’s treatment starts in around eight weeks, that is mid-March.

Says Abigail: “We hope that you will join the Wine Tasting, to help us raise urgently needed funds, while enjoying great wines and of course good company.” Tickets £30.00 per person, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
