Cherry Lodge Cancer Care is extremely grateful to Psychobilly Kicks Back (PKB) and the wider psychobilly rockabilly music community for their fantastic ongoing support. We give special thanks to PKB founder Steve Meadham and his wife Amanda Meadham. Steve and Amanda visited Cherry Lodge on 29th March 2023 to present the latest Psychobilly Kicks Back big cheque, for £3,800, an excellent sum raised in a difficult year. PKB are long-term supporters of Cherry Lodge, and this cheque brings the total they have raised for us to date to a truly fantastic £48,376.
Putting on an Event for Cherry Lodge
If you would like to put on an event to raise money on our behalf, either as an individual or through your workplace or another organisation, we would be delighted to hear from you.
We believe that raising money for Cherry Lodge Cancer Care should be a joint venture and we will be happy to support you in any way we can. For example, our Fundraising team can give you advice, help you plan and perhaps run your event, help you with publicity, lend you promotional material, and, as appropriate, provide Cherry Lodge signs, T-shirts and certificates.
Whether your plans are big or small we would be delighted to hear from you. We can help you over the phone, in person at our Centre, or by coming to talk to your group. For more information please contact our Charity Administrator and Fundraising Events Coordinator, Tina Papasavva, on 020 8441 7000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
