Marks & Spencers Ashtead Local Charity

It’s with pleasure that we’re able to announce that Ashtead branch of Marks & Spencers has adopted Emma’s Bubble Trust as their local charity of the year.

The team at M&S voted unanimously to have us as local “charity of the year” after visiting us at the Ashtead Village Fair earlier on in the year.

In terms of events we’ll be at the store once a month running various raffles, as well as hosting pink days and other sporting events. Not only this but we have Emma’s Bubble Trust charity pots on each of the tills in store.

So whether you’re popping in for bread and milk, or exploring the extensive beer and wine section in store, please make sure to donate any left over pennies from your shop!

Thank you in advance Ashtead!

Events

Royal Marsden Hospital to Brighton Bike Ride 2020

Take Part

Ride for us solo or as part of a team. However you ride, you’ll be amongst friends on our Royal Marsden Hospital to Brighton Bike Ride.

The Royal Marsden Hospital to Brighton Bike Ride is Emma’s Bubble Trust’s flagship event covering 46 miles from the teenage cancer ward at the hospital to the buzz at Brighton beach.

The event is aimed at riders of all ages and abilities. Please note that we try to stick together as a riding group, so if you’re a more advanced rider, please let us know.

Sign up to this event that takes you from city to coast, passing through beautiful Sussex countryside. After arriving in Brighton, we’ll make our way to the Brighton Rocks pub to celebrate. Share the triumph of conquering the The Royal Marsden Hospital to Brighton Bike Ride with your friends, family and fellow riders.

Your efforts will help to fund our flat for teenage cancer patients and their families to stay while receiving treatment at the hospital.

General Information

  • The Royal Marsden Hospital to Brighton Bike Ride is a 46 mile event
  • The Bike Ride follows a route through the Surrey and Sussex countryside, starting at The Royal Marsden Hospital (Sutton) and ending in Brighton at the Pier
  • The event is for cyclists of all abilities, however if you’re a pro then you may find the event a little slow
  • There is no minimum sponsorship…every little helps
  • The cost of entry is £20

Younger riders

The bike ride is a family event so we welcome riders aged 14 and above. If you are aged between 14 – 17 years old and would like to take part in the ride, you can only sign up by joining with a guardians consent.

Start times

We try to start at 9am, so please arrive early to setup your bike and warm up. There will be riders acting as guides, to support all riding abilities. We try to keep together as a group. Dependent on the volume of riders the event can sometimes take all day.

Set Up a JustGiving Page

The quickest and easiest way to do so is by setting up a JustGiving page. You can keep track of live donations and more importantly we’ll be able to claim GiftAid, which provides even more money to the help fund our flat. Share the page on all your social media channels and you’ll soon be smashing through your fundraising target.

The 3 course meal will follow welcome drinks and then we’ll get into an evening of games and this year a great volume of auction prizes up for grabs. A DJ will kick off the dance floor following the auction with the evening will finishing at midnight.

The venue is a little way away from major train stations so if you are booking taxi’s it’s advised to do so in advance.

Please remember that this years ball has a masquerade theme and we encourage everyone to go as whacky as possible in covering up their faces! It’s all about making those memories.

Finally please be reminded that this is a charity event and it’s our biggest fundraiser of the year, so please give as generously as you can on the night. Every £ you give goes straight to the charity and really helps to make a difference to the lives of young people suffering this most awful of disease.
