Welcome to the Spring addition to The Place Reporter.
We hope you enjoy receiving our newsletters.
Be sure to share them with your friends via email and on social media. The more people we can reach, the more awareness we can spread about our fantastic charity and the more people we can help.

We have had a busy few months at The Pink Place and have now opened sessions for our male guests. These are for men with any form of cancer and run once a month. If you know of someone that can benefit from our male services at The Blue Space, please call us or email: info4bluespace@gmail.com

If you work for an organisation, could you organise a fun day at your company to raise much needed funds for The Pink Place? .....A baking competition? ....A dress pink/blue day? ....A lunch break car wash? (now the weather is getting warmer)

If you require a fundraising pack please contact Natasha, email: pinkplaceinfo@gmail.com

Our comedy night was a huge success and a very enjoyable evening had by all. Thank you very much to Jan Jack and her Laughter House for supporting the event and to the Basingstoke 93 Round Table for sponsoring the evening, also all that attended and helped out.

For more information on our ladies, men or partner sessions, fundraising events and volunteering opportunities please contact a member of the team.

What our jumpers say:

‘I am a lucky breast cancer survivor 71 yrs old.

The older you get, the fewer new opportunities there are in life!!

Also the older you get the less you have to lose, and anticipating the thrill of flying like a bird is amazing. I can’t wait!’

…A Pink Place Guest
 

‘I have wondered about doing a skydive for a long time - it's just been in the back of my mind as something I might do one day.

Then my best friend was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. The Pink Place did so much for her at a time when I felt I could do nothing.

I'm terrified but I know it will be worth it for anyone who ever goes through those doors.’

…A Friend of a Pink Place Guest
