Helen Patterson for Sarcoma UK

My page:

This page is for donations in memory of Helen Patterson to Sarcoma UK.  There's another page for donations in Helen's memory to the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity.

Sarcoma UK provides information and support for patients with sarcoma and their carers, and funds research projects into causes and treatments.

On Sunday 21st April 2013 I'll be running the London Marathon in Helen's memory - only three years ago it was Helen who ran.  Please give generously.

Virgin Money Giving is a not-for-profit organisation. It will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this, and pass the money on to Sarcoma UK.  It charges 2% of each donation plus a 1.45% card-processing fee.

Thank you for your donation.
