The Conclude Consultancy is sponsoring a group of intrepid young people to cycle to Brugge from Brighton and back again. They are raising money for Macmillan Cancer Care a national charity, and St Peter and St James Hospice in Wivelsfield, Sussex, in the UK.
These two charities have helped Ollie (team member) and his family since Ollie’s mum, Val, was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour in June 2008.
Val took the news amazingly well, always determined to remain as happy and healthy as she could. Her regular visits to Brighton hospital for chemo and radiotherapy must have been distressing and painful, but she never once lost her smile or positive outlook.
Conclude’s work at Brighton & Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust and specifically with the Oncology team there is just one of life’s little coincidences – helped by the fact that our esteemed leader’s son Laurie, is one of the team members too!
