What a fantastic lunch event we and our supporters enjoyed today. Dr Nigel Blackburn from CRUK spoke about the latest drug developments and specifically about the neuroblastoma research which we at Petal have been fundraising for over the last 3 years. Then we had Janette Benaddi and Helen Butters from the ‘Yorkshire Rows’ team tell us all about their amazing challenge to row 3,000 miles across the Atlantic from La Gomera to Antigua back in 2015/16. It was edge of the seat stuff – what amazingly courageous and feisty girls they are. Can’t wait to read their forthcoming book – ‘Four Mums in a Boat’. This is due out on 9th March and can be pre-ordered now via following link
Sincere thanks to all 3 speakers and as always to all our fabulous supporters who attended today and helped us to raise £2604 whilst having a great afternoon out.
