A fantastic £17,643.25 raised for The Eve Appeal & Jo’s Trust
We are delighted to present The Eve Appeal and Jo’s Trust jointly with a cheque for £17,643. Funds were raised by Consultant Gynaecologist Narendra Pisal running and completing the world’s oldest and largest marathon, the Comrades Ultra Marathon in South Africa in June. Over the summer many patients and friends of London Gynaecology generously donated and sent messages of support and London Gynaecology matched the first £5000 raised.
The amount raised will be split between both charities and joining us on the day to collect the funds was Dan Joyce from Jo’s Trust and Becky Griffiths from The Eve Appeal.
Robert Music CEO of Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust said, “We’re so grateful for Dr Narendra’s commitment to supporting Jo’s over the years, continually taking on incredible feats to raise money. Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust is funded almost entirely by donations, so we rely on the generosity and enthusiasm of people like Dr Narendra.
The money raised will go a long way to ensuring we are able to support more people affected by cervical cancer and cell changes and be there when they need us most.”
Athena Lamnisos Chief Executive of The Eve Appeal said, “We are hugely grateful to Dr Pisal for taking on this incredible challenge and for raising over £18,000 for The Eve Appeal and Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust. We would also like to extend a huge thank you to his colleagues, friends and patients who donated so generously.
The money that Dr Pisal has raised will enable us to continue to fund research into the prevention and earlier detection of gynaecological cancers, bringing us closer to our vision of a world where less women develop and more women survive these cancers.”
