KATCANDO ANNUAL REPORT
It has been another successful and very busy year for the charity. Financially we continue to raise large amounts of money and improve the profile of KatCanDo. Our charity is not only known locally but is spreading over a wider area of SE Surrey and NW Hampshire.
Our fundraising efforts -
Other income has come from bequests in memory of family and friends known to KatCanDo members; donations from SC Johnson; Recycle4charity collecting old mobile phones and ink jets -
We have also been grateful for, corporate support, to the companies who continue to support our fundraising
Barclay’s Bank provide £ for £ matching scheme for a nominated event of the year.
SC Johnson with their “Giving back to the community” scheme and 20 year club.
Waitrose at Bagshot with their "Community Matters" Scheme
The outcome from all this hard work – enjoyment – and support is that we have raised a total of £28,000 for the financial year. This has enabled KatCanDo to donate money towards equipment and items to assist and contribute to the well being, health and treatment of cancer patients in our area.
Under the guidance of consultants, cancer nurse specialists and medical advisors, KatCanDo has provided the following equipment and services between April 2017 -

We have improved our relationships with new contacts both at Frimley Park Hospital, Basingstoke Hospital and The Royal Surrey, Guildford.
We are constantly promoting the Charity through local media -
We still have an ongoing request for televisions for two Oncology cubicles on the Paediatric ward at Frimley Park Hospital. We will guarantee to fulfil our obligations/promises to this organisation.
As we start a new financial year new requests are coming in from both the Royal Surrey Hospital and Basingstoke Hospital which we hope we can commit to or raise funds towards.
Our list of "Friends of KatCanDo" is ever increasing, who not only enjoy receiving news of future events, but we also have "friends" who are willing to become more involved with the charity by helping out at events and providing us with the most delicious cakes for our stalls.
'Cash for Gold' situated in Farnborough and Camberley have named KatCanDo as their charity of the year.
Thus in conclusion, thanks go out to all the Trustees, Committee Members, family, friends and supporters who continue to support the charity to achieve its aims in making a difference to the lives of cancer patients.
Our commitment is a willingness to give our time and energy to something we believe in -
