About Petal

Karen Weaving started Petal Childhood Cancer Research (previously Ribble Valley & White Rose Ladies) some 17 years ago to raise funds specifically for research into childhood cancers on behalf of Cancer Research UK.

In September 2013 Petal, with a committee of seven volunteers, achieved their £1 million milestone and in April 2014 invited His Royal Highness Duke of Gloucester to a celebratory luncheon as Guest of Honour. (The Duke is President of CRUK and an Honorary Member of Petal).
