2021 Newsletter

Thank you for your continued support this year. Your generosity and commitment to Emma’s Bubble Trust has helped us to continue to provide a comfortable place for young cancer patients and their families to stay when needed.

When we read the comments written in our Visitors Book we know that with your help we are making a difference!

We were able to hold our Charity Ball at the beginning of December which was a great evening and raised a fantastic total of £13,565

This has been our only event in almost two years so every penny raised is very much needed and appreciated.

Thank you to those that took part in our virtual Christmas raffle. Our winners were K Govier, S Stanley, P Manning, S Shepherd and Charlotte.

We are launching a ‘Give A Coffee” campaign from 1st  until 15th January. We ask that you give up one coffee and instead donate that money via Justgiving or our website. The price of one coffee will pay for the electricity for the EBT flat for one day. This will make a huge difference to our running costs.

On behalf of the EBT team I wish you a very Happy 2022 and once again thank you for your continued support.

Stay healthy and hopefully we shall see you at an event during the year.

Best wishes

Lynn Brandon

Trustee

Alison Cutts runs the marathon

Hi… my name is Alison and I’m privileged to be to running The London Marathon this October, for Emma’s Bubble Trust 💕

I am running in honour and memory of my gorgeous friend Caroline Welford, who passed away last year 💜

I am not a runner and have a love/hate relationship with it! But, I am determined to do this and make Caroline and Emma’s Bubble proud.

Training is going well… had a 13 mile run this week and I survived!

I would love it if you could sponsor me and help smash my fund-raising target. Anyone that does, can choose to add a song to my “Marathon Playlist”, whatever you fancy, to help me along on the big day.

This is my link, so don’t forget to leave your song choice in a message:)

Thank you in advance. Have a great day. Love Alison x

Royal Marsden flat has had a revamp

As many of you know, back in 2015 we purchased a flat, close to The Royal Marsden Hospital, for the soul intention of allowing patients and their families to stay while receiving treatment.

When we moved in, we renovated the Royal Marsden flat from top to bottom, painting throughout and installing new furniture. Many families have used the flat since and while we don’t get to hear about all of them (due to us handing over full use of the flat to The Royal Marsden Hospital) when we do it makes us proud to know that the money we’re raising is truly helping on the front line. It’s comforting to know that the flat is been being put to good use.

So we thought it would be a good idea after 5 years to upgrade the place slightly, adding in new decor and carpets throughout. This also is coupled with the fact that Regency Grove are funding the flats internet each month, providing patients and families with that much needed connection while they’re away from home. We hope that you agree that it’s definitely cosier than it was before and we’re really happy with the new look. Let us know if you agree!
