Brighter Futures are requesting we all dress up very smart for an evening to help raise vital funds for the dedicated radiotherapy unit planned for GWH. This event replaces the sports auction dinner planned for last september.
Thanks to very generous supporters of the hospital we have donated over 20 different sporting experiences and prizes, ranging from clay pigeon shooting, horse riding, brand new mountain bikes, hotel stays, dinner, even a signed football from the Chelsea FC Foundation to help make this a truly glamorous event .
The website which has helped to win all of these fantastic prizes has reached its target of 100,00 visits and has been monumental in the fundraising undertaken for both cycling from Rome and also keeping you up to date with challenges and cycling events in Wiltshire and beyond. Read more

We will keep you posted on other news coming in as we get it.
