My story

[p][b][img][/img]Alex and I have set ourselves the challenge of cycling to Paris from London on our tandem. We set off from home on 25th June and cycle to Newhaven where we get a ferry across to Dieppe, and over the course of the next three days and two hundred miles we will cycle to Paris.[/b][/p][p][b]Why you may ask! We will be fundraising for the Lily Pad Appeal set up to raise money for a new children’s oncology unit in our local hospital. If the cause touches your heart or you would like to provide us with some moral support please make a donation through this page. Any contribution would be most appreciated.[/b][/p][p][b]Thank you![/b][/p][p][b][u]For More About the Lily Pad Appeal Read On [img][/img][img][/img][/u][/b][/p][p][b]The Chartwell Cancer Trust has set up a ‘Lily Pad Appeal’ to raise £750k for a new children’s oncology unit which is part of the total refurbishment of a new Integrated Paediatric Unit at Croydon University Hospital.[/b][/p][p][b]The new unit will accommodate all of the key services for very unwell children in modern surroundings with enhanced facilities for patients, parents and the hospital’s medical teams. [/b][/p][p][b]Providing modern improved facilities for young children with serious illnesses is a priority, especially at a time when they face a most uncertain future. The new and modernised Oncology Unit is a crucial part of the planned £3m overhaul to integrate Acute Paediatric Services in Croydon University Hospital.[/b][/p][p][b]Every donation we receive for the Lily Pad Appeal goes directly towards improving care for sick children. Your support will help us to ensure that we can provide a long-lasting legacy for Croydon University Hospital, and that our children will have access to the best care and experience at such a difficult time in their young lives.[/b][/p][p][b]PLEASE HELP US MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO CANCER CARE[/b][/p]

Tasneem Rahman

This is from a very lovely lady called Tasneem Rahman from St Thomas hospital. She took a photograph of us in front of the Eiffel Tower and then gave us 30 euros towards the Lily Pad Appeal. Thank you so much Tasneem!
