The Phil Whittaker Fund has been involved in a wide range of activities which have raised a tremendous amount for Macmillan.
A charity football match at Kimberly Leisure Centre marked the culmination of a series of fundraising events by the organisation.
Throughout 2010, the Fund has been involved in a variety of events that have helped to raise a fantastic £14,800 for Macmillan, including a golf day which saw over 200 players take to the course of Oakmere Park.
Since the passing of Phil Whittaker, a Police Officer in Nottinghamshire, in late 2001, numerous fund raising activities have taken place in his memory including:
a sponsored Spin class, organised by Tim Dunne
two fashion shows, organised by Elaine Hopkins & Ali Cartwright
a police six a side tournament, organised by Tony Heydon
a 21 mile walk by 20 of Phil’s colleagues, organised by Donna Robinson
the Nottingham half marathon, ran by Kieran O’Shea.
One of the organisers, Stuart Kinton, presented a cheque to Macmillan’s Fundraising Manager for Nottinghamshire, Greg Woolley, who commented: 'It’s a fantastic amount that Stuart has raised and we are extremely grateful for his continued support over the past nine years. Over 2 million people are affected by cancer and we couldn’t provide our services without the support of people like Stuart.'
Stuart said: 'I would like to thank all the staff, friends and colleagues for their continued support in raising funds.'
