A big massive THANK YOU to Matthew Masters & the Angel Foundation for officially launching our Talbot Butler EAB appeal with an incredible £10,000 donation.
Thank you so much to Matthew Masters, his dad Dave and to The Angel Foundation for their incredible donation of £10,000!! This very generous donation helps to officially kick-start the fundraising for the NEW Emergency Assessment Bay (EAB) on Talbot Butler Ward.
Matthew started The Angel Foundation in memory of his mum, Angela and is helping to raise money for the new Talbot Butler EAB following the support Angela and the family received from the Oncology and Haematology departments while she was a patient.
Matthew recently came in with his dad Dave, wife Caz and son Alfie to present a cheque to the Talbot Butler team. The picture above was taken in the Relatives Room on the ward. The Angel Foundation also very kindly donated £5,000 towards the creation and building of this new room last year.
The fundraising all started off way back in July 2015 with a BBQ and cake sale where they raised £350. This was quickly followed by an abseil in the September in which 15 members of The Angel Foundation took part.
Numerous other events and activities followed – a sky dive, marathon, commander challenge and 3 quiz nights to name just a few – all raising money throughout 2016 and 2017.
The fundraising continues and in May this year Matthew is doing a “triple madness challenge” for Team Angel. This will cover 3 events, a staggering 56 miles and no less than 220 obstacles!! All over just 3 days! It certainly is a triple madness challenge and we take off our hats to such a determined and thoughtful fundraiser.
We are lucky to have this amazing family fundraising for our appeal, something we will remain forever grateful for.
