25 Years of BAGS Fund Raising - over £450,000 raised

Amy Mullins (Head of Community Fundraising) following receipt of a cheque for £17,000 from BAGS. This was the total raised from fundraising in 2020.

COVID 19 has made 2020 a challenging year for all of us, and indeed, we were unable to hold our annual Charity Day in June this year.

But, knowing how important fundraising is to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, that didn't stop us!

We used the resources available to us, including many 4 Ball vouchers kindly donated by golf clubs, and we were able to raise a staggering £17,000, taking our total over the last 25 years to well over £450,000.

Lilly Pye (Community Fundraising Manager) at The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity said: "Thank you so much for your incredible donation of £17,000 for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. Please pass on our gratitude to everyone at Bookham Amateur Golf Society who was involved. It really is a phenomenal amount to have raised during this challenging year for fundraising and we are so grateful for your continued support. Your kind donation will support the funding of an RNA/DNA Extractor Robot. This Robot is able to extract information from a patient's cells to identify genetic changes in a person's cancer. Detecting these changes makes it possible to predict who may benefit from certain drugs, and who is not likely to respond, allowing us to tailor treatment for each patient."
