Russell Simpson is proud to sponsor the Bob Champion Cancer Trust Carols & Champagne, fundraising event 2014, held at Chelsea Old Church, Old Church Street, London, SW3 5LT.
The event begins at 6.30pm, opening with a carol service and each guest receiving a glass of Sloe gin upon arrival. Talented soloist Pumeza Matshikiza, described as one of the most exciting new operatic voices, will perform for guests during proceedings.
Alan Russell, founder of specialist Chelsea estate agents Russell Simpson, said: “We’re delighted to sponsor this wonderful event that will help raise money and awareness for a very worthwhile cause. We have supported the Bob Champion Cancer Trust for a number of years and are immensely thankful for all of the hard work undertaken to help fight cancer.”
Former Champion Jockey, Bob Champion, was diagnosed with cancer in 1979, following successful treatment he beat the disease and went on to win the 1981 Grand National, with horse Aldaniti. The interest and enthusiasm generated by “racing’s greatest fairytale” led to the foundation of the Bob Champion Cancer Trust in 1983.
Five years later, the Bob Champion Cancer Research Unit was opened within the Royal Marsden NHS Trust Hospital in Sutton, Surrey. The Trust’s commitments have extended beyond the unit with two patient-related projects; the Aldaniti Rehabilitation Unit plus the Bob Champion Lounge, a leisure area for those having prolonged in-patient care.
