Healix Bake Sale raises £198.22

So many thanks to the team at Healix Group in Esher who ran a bake sale for us and raised an amazing £198.22!

Here’s a note from Nicola Gill:

We had a great day selling cakes in our office in aid of Emma’s Bubble Trust. We loaded our trolley up with goodies for the 11am mid morning break, which went down very well with the staff, especially Adam D’s coffee cake which sold out in under an hour! We then made our rounds again at 3pm so that everyone could have an afternoon pick me up. The leftovers (and there wasn’t much left!) were left out for the weekend staff. A big thank you to all of our bakers who created some delicious goodies! A very successful bake sale!

Amanda’s Autumn Fashion Show 2017

Amanda Ladies Fashions of Ashtead every year hold a fantastic Fashion Show for the local community and we were very lucky to be the supported charity this year! The show itself was fantastic with Amanda offering selective labels and beautiful clothes for every occasion, casual to smart chic.

For over thirty years Amanda Ladies Fashions has clothed thousands of extremely satisfied customers, you will find beautiful fashions for women of every generation and for every occasion – day or evening, smart or casual. Amanda’s appeal is embodied by a mix & match of trendy and iconic pieces combining know-how, an ever-present pursuit of quality, attention to detail and customer service that is second to none.

On the night of the show we managed to raise an amazing £2780.10, so a huge thanks to everyone from the local community that attended and enjoyed the wine, food, Basil on the piano and of course the fantastic clothes.

We’d also like to say a huge thank you to Michael Everett for sponsoring the evening by providing all of the wine.

The Family Building Society: Nominated Charity

We recently received the below email from Graham Jelley the Premises & Facilities Manager at The Family Building Society:

You may recall we met very briefly last month in the HSBC bank in Epsom High Street, whilst we were both doing some banking.

I have nominated EmmasBubbleTrust to be one of the charities our staff Sports & Social club support this year, and I am pleased to say this was accepted earlier today at the club’s AGM.

Throughout the year we undertake a whole range of sports & social events as well as regular ad-hoc events during the working week creating an opportunity for the staff to help raise funds for our chosen charities.

I will be in touch again shortly, but in the interim if you would like to discuss the charity with me in more detail then please let me know, and I wish you and the rest of Emma’s Army good luck with your fund raising.

 

A big thank you goes out to Graham for suggesting us. As you can imagine we’re absolutely over the moon and can’t wait to see what events the team plan over the course of the next year!

London to Brighton 2017

We had so much fun on our London to Brighton ride for 2017, with Adam W, Paul, Stevie, Sophie, Tom, Ryan, Louise, Jo, Lenny and Adam L, cycling the distance from The Royal Marsden Hospital to Brighton, on one of the hottest nicest rides we’ve had in a number of years.

This year was a little different as we decided to run the ride a week before we usually do, as we had the Wimbledon Fair the following weekend, but we were really glad that we did. As normal we took the route from The Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton, down to Brighton. Many riders decided to cycle over to the start this year, so ended up covering a lot more distance than we have in previous years.

It really was a fantastic day, with riders raising lots of money and the supporters doing a fantastic job of raising over £300 en route too! Massive thanks go out to the stag and hen parties in Brighton who made it a real giggle, especially swapping shirts with Stevie!

Emma’s Bubble Trust Flat

As many of you are aware our flat is now being used by both patients having to attend daycare for chemotherapy and by parents of teenagers having to stay at the hospital.

By being able to stay locally in the flat it makes life so much easier, cutting down on travel expenses and having the reassurance that they are a stones throw away from the hospital if they are needed.

We have had positive feedback from those that have stayed, saying how welcoming, comfortable and convenient it is, which is great!

Thank you so much to all those that have supported us and fundraised to help this to have become possible. Let’s hope that we can continue to offer this support to families that need it for many years to come.

Pictures of the flat can be seen below..

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

EBT Ball 2015It’s been another fantastic year for all of us at Emma’s Bubble Trust. I would like to thank you for support and for making Emma’s Ball such a fantastic night. I hope that many of you enjoyed the evening, we certainly did and we managed to raised £4130, which is amazing as it allows us to cover the costs of the flat in Sutton for about 6 months!
At Emma’s Ball there’s a few people that we would like to thank. Firstly all of Emma’s Army and the Events Committee for help on the day of the ball and throughout the year. Without your dedication and hard work, we wouldn’t be able to be as successful as we are. Secondly a massive thanks to David Morgan, our amazing Master of Ceremonies, who comes out of retirement for us every year to host us. The job that you do is superb and really ensures that everyone has a fantastic time! Thirdly many thanks to the team at PartyTime Entertainment Limited who provided a superb night of entertainment and even auctioned off their services at the end of the night, which raised us another £460, which all comes straight to us!
I have included a link to the photographer in case you would like to order any photos. I know that a lot of people have asked for the link as they had intended to buy their photos but time ran out! The evening seemed to finish too soon! http://www.greateventphotography.com.
Finally on behalf of everyone involved with EBT and anyone that we haven’t thanked here, we would like to say thank you and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year.

We’ve bought a flat

california-courtWe are delighted to announce that we have reached another of our targets which is to purchase a flat. This will provide a place to stay for the families of those teenagers that are being treated at The Royal Mardsen Hospital in Sutton.

Our thanks go to all those that have,and continue to support us in order for this target to be realised. A very big thank you also goes to everyone that came along to help decorate the flat, we still have a small amount of plastering to be done (if anyone is able to offer their services we would be grateful) and of course furnish it.

We hope to have our first family staying by late September.

Look out for a progress report within the coming weeks!
