Message from Dr Margaret M. Clark, Cherry Lodge Chairman
In response to the worsening coronavirus outbreak, it has been decided to cancel all Cherry Lodge fundraising events until further notice. We offer our thanks to all the people who have already worked so hard to put on events that will no longer take place, or which might now take place at a later date.
New fundraising initiatives from the Mayor of Barnet, Cllr Caroline Stock, and her Mayor’s Appeal Committee
The Mayor of Barnet’s 1920’s-themed Gala Dinner, scheduled for Saturday 25th April 2020, has had to be cancelled due to the coronavirus. All tickets had been sold and the event was expected to bring the current Mayor’s Appeal to a spectacular conclusion. This was not to be – and a major rethink was needed. So the Mayor and her committee have come up with a solution – with your help they can steer disadvantage into advantage by turning this Gala Dinner into a virtual fundraising event online. In this way, they are still looking to meet their original Gala Dinner target to raise £10,000 for Cherry Lodge Cancer Care and Home-Start Barnet. If you can, please support The Mayor’s Virtual ‘Money Can’t Buy’ Auction and The Mayor’s Virtual Raffle to be drawn on 25th April, when the Gala Dinner was to have taken place.

Fundraising is vital to Cherry Lodge Cancer Care. Without it, we would not be able to offer free services to all our Members. You can help us by attending our fundraising events, by becoming a Cherry Lodge fundraising volunteer, by getting people to sponsor you to take part in an event or activity, or by putting on your own event on our behalf.

Other volunteers, perhaps with only occasional time to spare, may offer to help out with specific events.More on Volunteering

During the course of the year, we are granted permission to use our collection boxes on specific days in supermarkets or shopping centres. Volunteers are always needed to help with these collections.
