Suzanne Foster, Gemma Pouncy and Halina Tomlinson from Trethowans, attended The Joe Glover Trusts’ (children’s cancer charity) fundraising ball in October where they presented the charity with a cheque on behalf of Trethowans for £1,346.90.
The James Bond themed event, held in the Novotel in Southampton, raised around £17,000 for the charity from the raffle and auction. Trethowans are proud to have supported the charity at their event, and also from their donation.
The Joe Glover Trust, a Hampshire based children’s cancer charity which works with families and specialist children’s cancer units across Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire, East and West Sussex, the Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands. The Trust was formed in 2007 following the death of eight-year-old Joe Glover to Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and is run by parents who have first-hand experience of these life changing events. The Joe Glover Trust strongly believes that no child suffering from cancer or their family should ever feel alone.

Suzanne Foster, head of charities at Trethowans, commented “it was a great event and I am pleased that the ball raised so much money for The Trust. I am even more pleased that we are able to increase this amount for such a worthy cause with our own donation”.
