Hawking House Hands Over Cheque to Parent’s Cancer Charity
The donation was given to Dawn Green, who set up the charity Pseudomyxoma Survivor after she was diagnosed with this rare form of cancer in 2008.
Her two daughters, Kirsten and Megan Marshall (pictured), are members of Hawking house and last year, Head of House Andy Brown agreed that the charity should be Hawking's nominated cause.
The money was raised through cake sales and by collecting pennies and students will continue fundraising for Pseudomyxoma Survivor again this year.
Dawn said she was grateful to receive the donation, adding: "It's been a great learning curve working with the house so now we'll be looking at how to develop things further this year and seeing what works."
She said she has been approached by Basingstoke Hospital - one of only two hospitals in the country which treats patients with pseudomyxoma peritonei - to fundraise for some chemotherapy trolleys.
