Hi I’m Michelle and I am an employment lawyer, I’ve been networking for 8 years and this year I’ve decided to take part in race for life which is on 21 July 2019. I’m very excited to do the walk with my daughters as this means a lot to us as a family to raise money for cancer research. Am I ready to do this? Yes I’m ready to do it – we will probably walk most of it with a little jog in between!
I am doing race for life with my 2 gorgeous daughters. As a family we have lost family members to cancer. Also, Francesca, my daughter’s boyfriend was diagnosed last year with stomach cancer at the age of 19 and has had his whole stomach removed. I am doing this for Uncle Alf, Andrew & George.
1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me if you can.
All Cancer Types
Cancer survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years. Consistent progress is being made but improvements to technology and ground-breaking work offer new opportunities to find different ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer and improve survival rates even further. Help Cancer Research UK improve results even faster.
What we love about our business women that attend our networking events is that they don’t just care about their own success they care about other business women’s success too.
Many of our members also have very busy personal lives and yet they find the time to raise money for charity.
We love that!
Jenny has jumped out of a plane, crawled across the Maldon Mud (with Pängel wings on!) and now she is wing walking!
Yes Wing Walking!
It’s even more important to us that we shout about Jenny, because;
How can you not find a fiver for Jenny!
If you can we would be very grateful and you can find out how Jenny gets on because Jenny attends lots of our Essex events. We are sure Jenny will share some exciting stories with us!
Are you doing your bit for a local charity? If so we can feature you in our newsletter, social media and on our Stella Women page too!
Local business owner, Liz Leatherdale of Colchester Classics and Classical Music Columnist is putting on the pounds for St Helena Hospice, Colchester. Liz Leatherdale said “Yes, I’m raising money for St Helena Hospice again to help them continue their important work in our community. Since my late Dad was diagnosed with cancer in 2007 I’ve been occasionally raising money for St Helena Hospice. He so enjoyed his weekly day-time activities and care from the Hospice. I’ve raised £1,231 so far since 2009 and this year I’m hoping with your help to raise a further £500 with one of the biggest challenges I’ve done for the hospice.”
Liz commented “While I’m having fun at the gym (yes it actually is) I’d like you to pile on the pounds sterling for St Helena Hospice. As anyone who knows me, the shedding of pounds and going to the gym is a tad challenging – bit like pushing treacle up hill.”
Thanks for reading this and caring about the important work that our local hospice achieves and if you have a spare £1 or few please – click here to make a donation.
Even if you can’t donate then just a retweet, a like and or a share all helps and its gratefully appreciated. So thankyou!
