The Trust was most grateful to have received a substantial donation from Toppesfield’s St. Margaret’s C of E Primary School this month. It came from the Harvest Service Collection held at the end of October.
It is wonderful that memories of Nancy live on so strongly in the village that she loved so much.
An update. As you will see from the target 'thermometer' further down this page Ali raised a wonderful £1,528 and not only that she returned from her advenures in the sky completely unscathed, well physically at least! A big thank you to Ali for such a lovely contribution to the Trust's funds and coincidentally it comes at a time that the Trust is funding lymphoedema treatment training for Kerry Topp and Jennie Doran who are based in Colchester and their area of work certainly covers Bures, close to Ali's home. Thank you Ali.
A couple of months ago we were very pleased to hear from Ali and to learn from her that she would support the Trust in such a spectacular way.
Hi, my name is Ali and I had breast cancer 5 years ago, after going through chemo and radiotherapy I then found out I had lymphoedema. This is incurable and something I have to learn to live with. This condition is not widely known about which was a big shock to me and by going to the 6 monthly clinics I learnt about the Nancy Salmon Trust.
Last year I decided to raise money for Colchester cancer wards by doing a fire walk with other friends and family and we raised a whopping £2000. This year on Saturday 9th July I'm doing a WING WALK plus I've arranged an after flight party for whoever wants to join us at the Thatcher’s Arms Mount Bures. There will be music, a hog roast, a huge assault inflatable course for the children and a raffle. I would love to see you all there.
If you would like to support me, and so The Nancy Salmon Trust, please donate to the Trust via the ‘Donate’ button below.
This fantastic event, early in October, was initiated by Paul Thompson, Toppesfield’s resident concert promoter. Chris Ames, the village’s own rock star, supported and opened the show with his band "Strangers Know More" and with special thanks to Minity Minter, the sound man.
The main act was Voodoo Room and, as the poster said, “The Ultimate Double Bill! Hendrix and Cream performed live by Voodoo Room”. The whole evening went down very well with the audience.
The profit from this event was donated to Nancy’s Trust and amounted to an incredible £1,550! What more can we say but thank you to Paul for putting it on.
