We offer assistance where it's most needed. We have organised our own Events or supported others to organise Events to raise funds. To date we have organised or supported the following charity events:
From the funds raised Polly's Angels are able to provide grants to individuals who require investigations into cancer or have already been diagnosed with a condition that impacts on their life such as Cancer. We believe it is important to get an early diagnosis to improve your chances of survival.
One of the people we are currently helping is a lady called Polly Haydock. Polly was diagnosed with cancer in October 2015 and in July 2016 was told the cancer was terminal. Polly researched immunotherapy treatment which can improve prognosis. In November 2016 we started to hold events to raise funds and in December 2016 we formed Polly's Angels. This means that we have the ability to continue raising funds and broaden our scope to assist others who wish to be involved either as Beneficiary, Fundraiser/Donor or Member. With help from Polly's Angels her treatment fund stands at over £200k.
Trustees have also spent time on telephone calls and emails to individuals. We have provided a listening ear and offered advice on how to organise the events that we have held to date. It doesn't provide a cure, but it does provide hope and encourage positivity. This in itself can help the body feel better. A Positive Mental Attitude, Happiness and many other states of mind can help.
Meet one of the people that impacted on us on our journey to help. Kate Jane Colgan is a lady that was at the Hallwang Clinic in May 2017 when Polly arrived. Polly's Angels spent time with Kate and her family. We talked about ways to raise funds, although Kate was doing an absolutely fabulous job of this herself.
