John first became involved with Hope for Tomorrow through his friendship with Charity Founder, Christine Mills MBE, a fellow member of the congregation at St. Nicholas Church in the village.
John largely supports the Charity by supplying marquees and auction prizes, with occasional ‘stand-in’ duty as the auctioneer!
“The value of this unique Charity is driven home whenever one meets someone who has been treated on a Mobile Unit – including one close friend. Hope for Tomorrow has transformed chemotherapy treatment, being much more convenient than travelling significant distances, fostering mutual support between patients, and enabling friendships to develop between the patients and the NHS staff.
“It was a great surprise and honour when I was asked to be an Ambassador for the Charity, and to be presented with my special pin by the Princess Royal, who was clearly very enthusiastic about the Hope for Tomorrow concept, and the national delivery which is underway.”
John received his Ambassador award from HRH The Princes Royal, during her visit to our next generation Mobile Chemotherapy Unit at Cheltenham General Hospital, in September 2015.
