Thank you

We'd like to say a big thank you to all those who have supported us with our Auction of Promises especially our charity partner Chorley's who ran it

All proceeds from the auction will go towards new Breast Cancer Research Nurses for Gloucestershire, which means that for the first time, breast cancer patients in Gloucestershire will have the opportunity to take part in research – thank you.

Eddie the Eagle kindly donated a free ski lesson at Gloucester Ski Slopes

The  English ski-jumper who in 1988 became the first competitor since 1928 to represent Great Britain in Olympic ski jumping, finished last in the 70 m and 90 m events but has a first place in our hearts for his generosity.
