Brownsea Island charity event: ‘fresh new ideas’ for cancer support

Brownsea Island is the idyllic setting for an event to help raise money and awareness for the Wessex Cancer Trust. It takes place Thursday August 15 and your £22.50 ticket includes the ferry to Brownsea Island, plus Pimms and canapes on arrival. You will be given a tour of the island’s nature reserve by a National Trust Ranger, a real treat.

With the celebration of the Trust’s 30th birthday in 2011, it is essential that current and new supporters dig deep to help fund the support that has helped so many people in the region to date. Wessex Cancer Trust provides counselling and complementary therapy services for adults, teenagers and children battling cancer.

The Wessex Cancer Trust is working with Darren Northest PR on the event. Karen Rhys said: “The Brownsea Island visit offers a relaxed atmosphere in which our supporters can enjoy themselves and do something good for the charity. We hope to see many of our supporters there!”

Darren Northeast says he is proud to be involved. “With an estimated 12 million people diagnosed with cancer worldwide every year, over 8,000 of those diagnosed are in the Dorset area, we need to do our part in helping those that we are able to reach. We at Darren Northeast PR are proud to be sponsoring Wessex Cancer Trust in this new idea to raise awareness. We hope to assist and sponsor more creative events such as this one – fresh new ideas are a way of getting a charity noticed.”

Tickets of £22.50 – to book, please contact Karen Rhys at or call 07545 145776.

    You’re right. I think the issue is not him being un2d&feer#8d30;he looks to be healthy enough and god knows Kath feeds him anywhere and everywhere she can to show off that she’s omgbreastfeeding. I think the problem is that her response to a clearly hungry baby doesn’t seem to be very loving or compassionate. When your baby communicates with you by rooting, crying, etc. a mother should respond quickly to meet the baby’s current need. That’s how you build trust and bond with an infant, not by laughing at the baby and posting a video of it on Facebook.
