Can you help me make a real difference to the life of someone affected by ovarian cancer?

I’m raising funds for Ovacome, the national UK charity focused on providing support and information to anyone affected by this disease. This cause means a lot to me because they were such a big support when I was having my treatment for ovarian cancer. Ovacome is a strong community for those who have been diagnosed, those who think that they might be at risk, friends and family, and healthcare professionals.

Ovacome exists to reduce isolation, provide expert information, promote understanding of ovarian cancer and its symptoms, and to support those affected by it in their time of need.

Ovacome’s specialist support team is there to help those living with ovarian cancer navigate their treatment, care and life beyond the disease through the charity’s telephone support line, email, and 24-hour forum. Ovacome also hosts online and in-person groups, workshops, and events where people affected can meet others in similar circumstances, share advice, make friends, and offer encouragement to one another in a safe environment.

Ovacome receives no government funding and so relies on its donors and fundraisers to make its life-changing work possible. Your generosity could help someone affected by ovarian cancer access the vital support and resources they need. Any amount you feel able to give could have a huge impact on the experience of someone facing a diagnosis.

I do hope that you’ll consider joining me for a fun-filled fundraising Brush Party painting event and take away your own 'Good Hare Day' canvas.
It's taking place on Saturday 2 March 2024 from 1:30pm to 4:30pm at Hook Norton Sports and Social Club OX15 5PB.

It doesn’t matter if you haven’t picked up a paintbrush since school, Brush Party's artist will walk you through creating your masterpiece. You don’t need to bring anything apart from yourself … everything is provided… a quality canvas, all the paint you need, brushes, aprons, and the environment for you to have a great night out. If you feel confident, you can interpret this any way you wish – maybe you’d like to change the colours to suit your décor?

Tickets cost £33, please email [email protected] to purchase. There will be refreshments available to purchase on the day and also a raffle.

It would mean a lot to me if you could share my fundraising page with your friends, family, colleagues and on your social media.

Thank you so much for helping me to ensure that Ovacome can continue to be there to support those affected by ovarian cancer when they need it most. Together we can make a real difference! Amanda Hall
