TMWF: Taking steps to beat cancer
The Malcolm Whales Foundation is a fundraising cancer charity in memory of Malcolm Whales.
Following his death in 2008, to honour Malcolm’s memory, Damien his son set out to create a legacy in his name:
The charity now organises numerous fundraising events each including: Sports Marathons, Golf Days, various sports tournaments and our annual 40 mile sponsored walk in Dorset.
As a charity we ‘take steps to beat cancer’ meaning we try to make a difference to cancer through being active and having fun, alongside challenging yourself physically. The impact the charity has had on the people that have been involved has been incredible. The Foundation is a team that works hard together, once you get involved you are hooked!
We have been incredibly successful with our fundraising and at the mid point of 2020 we have managed to raise over £285,000.
One of our biggest challenges has been finding enough causes to distribute the money to. We are very keen to see a direct impact on people/individuals. Where possible we try to be involved in the fundraising and the impact that can be achieved.
So far we have sponsored: weeks of outward bounds cancer support, paid for renovations of charity clubhouses, bought a charity support boat, completed two hospital gardens, funded numerous support projects, contributed to research projects, supported individuals, made donations to fundraising causes, sponsored conferences… the list goes on! We also have charity partners that we have donate to annually. Our current major project is a £50,000 donation to update the Robert Horrell cancer wellbeing Centre at Peterborough Hospital.
If you an interested please sign up to one of our events. If that isn’t possible we would welcome all levels of support. If you are here looking for help, please get in contact, that’s what we are here for!Malcolm’s story
