Happy New Year!

Hi all

We would like to start by wishing you all a very happy and healthy new year. We hope you have spent time with loved ones, enjoyed a break, and have renewed energy for the new year.

We had a bit of a quiet last half of 2016 – primarily due to health issues the Compson family were unable to partake in much direct fundraising, so we have relied on our friends to continue the work on our behalf and even down to people donating in place of sending Christmas cards! We are thankful to you all.

2017 however is a new year, and there is plenty of opportunity to get involved! So please get your ideas to us for any fundraising you wish to do, we really do appreciate any help we can get.

Sarah and Barry had a busy end of 2016 welcoming their first child to the world – Theo is a happy and healthy baby and we are all smitten with him. He has already signed up for his first charity event – he will be walking/being carried around the Marsden March this year fundraising in memory of his wonderful Aunt Katie. A group of us will be once again treading the pavements for 14 miles between the sites of the two Royal Marsden Hospitals. Please do support us!

We really have started to see the results of all the fundraising you have done, and we were thrilled to receive the Royal Marsden progress report which I have shared below. Not only is the database already providing results, but the pain team that have developed the Katie Compson Foundation database are nominated for an award. We will update you when we hear the results!

Much love

Jenny, Peter, Elise, Sarah, Barry….and Theo!
