Matched Giving - Well done to Helen Yates

30 January 2024

We are proud to support our colleagues fundraising efforts with our Matched Giving initiative - a way of boosting the money you have fundraised.

Congratulations to Helen Yates who recently took part in 100 squats a day for Stand Up To Cancer. Helen has raised an amazing £785 including a £250 Matched Giving fundraising boost from Carpenters Group.

Here is what Helen had to say:

"In February 2023, I was diagnosed with Stage 3C Cervical Cancer. The scary part is leading up to my diagnosis I had no symptoms or symptoms that you could pass off as day-to-day discomfort/ pain.

After 5 rounds of chemotherapy, 25 rounds of radiotherapy and 3 rounds of internal radiotherapy my post-treatment scans have been clear.

I decided to take on this challenge, although I was still recovering, to raise money for research into the treatment that ultimately saved my life."

Well done to Helen and thank you for sharing your story
