Cherry Lodge Cancer Care fundraisers continue to put on an interesting and succesful range of events. Summer Soulstice 2024, our biggest third-party fundraising event by far, was held on Saturday 15th June. This was followed, on Monday 24th June by a very enjoyable fundraising Shopping Extravaganza at The Landsby in Stanmore. Six swimmers took part in the CL 2024 Sponsored Swim in QE Boys’ School on Sunday 7th July and raised in excess of £2,000.

Next up are the annual Summer Soulstice Big Payback event at the Black Horse pub on Bank Holiday Sunday 25th August, followed by another Cha Night in aid of Cherry Lodge at the Arkley Club on Friday 30th August. Iris will be holding an Autumn Flower Arranging workshop, and we will have a team of runners taking part in the 2024 London 10K on Sunday 22nd September.

From coffee mornings and lunches to running events and bike rides, there is a whole range of activities you can enjoy while also supporting Cherry Lodge.
