PLANETS have hit our £1 million fundraising target!
PLANETS was formed in 2011 by Neil Pearce, Brian Stedman and Layla Stephen and at the time they had some fairly conservative, but important, aspirations. They wanted to raise £60k to buy Brian a new ultrasound and provide our patients that were on complex cancer pathways, with support – the latter still being one of the most important things we do, and something we are very proud of.
From day one, PLANETS have been blown away by the support we have received and how willing people are to volunteer and raise money for our cause and this has enabled us to achieve things we never dreamed were possible when we first set out. So firstly, thank you to every single one of you for helping us achieve the amazing things we have so far, we couldn’t do it without you! This amount is beyond our wildest dreams and has allowed us to not only buy that first ultrasound but also introduce Intra operative therapy to the UK, fund research to help us develop new treatments for the future, pay for a NET dietician for the region, as well as support more patients than we hoped to be able to in the beginning. We don’t want to stop here, there is so much more to achieve but we are proud of what we have achieved and want to share it with you, the people that helped us get here!
Making an announcement like this is a little bittersweet as the nature of the charity and what we do means that we have lost friends along the way, some of whom have been a big part of this achievement. Those people inspire us to work harder and keep pushing to make things better for future patients.
Come and celebrate this amazing milestone with us at the Great Gatsby Millionaires ball in November!
