Be a Forever Friend & help Excalibur beat cancer

By Anita Jaynes on August 08, 2014

Excalibur Communications have embarked on an ambitious challenge to raise £50,000 for the Forever Friends appeal to equip Bath’s Royal United Hospital (RUH) Teenage and Young person’s cancer facility. The £50,000 will be generated by a series of events which Excalibur hope to raise £25,000 from and will then match this with a £25,000 donation from the company.

Excalibur are now inviting the local business community to join them at the Excalibur Race Day at Bath Racecourse on Wednesday 3 September to enjoy a day of racing and hospitality and help this great cause.

Each year at Bath RUH over 2,000 new cancer cases are treated from the hospital’s extensive catchment area. Every day this disease forever alters the future of peoples’ lives. The centre will cover Bath, Wiltshire, Bristol and surrounding areas and offer the very best and technologically advanced care for cancer patients. They aim to provide a nurturing and therapeutic environment that is centered on patient care and experience, promoting health and a ‘holistic’ approach for patients and their families.

Excalibur’s CEO James Phipps is confident that with the backing of the local community they will hit their target, “The RUH teenage cancer ward is a much needed facility, helping young people battle through such a terrible disease. Currently teenagers are treated in the children’s ward before moving to adult care at the age of 18. Our teenage years are so important and it’s essential we provide these patients with the ability to stay in contact with their friends and keep up with their studies. The money we raise will help Bath RUH create a state of the art facility that covers much of the South West.”

Tickets for the Race Day are available from www.ex-c.co.uk/excaliburraceday and cost £60+VAT per person, this includes a champagne reception, 2 course meal, race day programme, along with an auction and raffle.

Fancy a VIP experience to treat your clients or team? For £1,500+VAT you can enjoy the hospitality dinner for 10, sponsor a race, present the winners trophy and toast their success with a glass of champagne in the winners enclosure. Again visit  www.ex-c.co.uk/excaliburraceday to find out more.
