In 2016 Barrett’s continued to be top of the agenda. It was so great to see all the events that our volunteers took part in both here in the UK and abroad. Well done Barrett’s volunteers. Your hard work is wonderful and appreciated!

 

  • Samantha Rose walked the Test Way in October for BOC.
  • Samantha Bosher and Kerry Doney participated in the great North Run raising funds for BOC in September.
  • Stephen Fox walked 1100 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats to raise awareness of Barrett’s Oesophagus and raise funds for the patient support charity, Barrett’s Wessex. His endeavour is celebrated on this website: www.LE-JOG.org.uk
  • Robert Sadlier ran 177 Km Ultra Marin Raid Golfe du Mrbihan over 2 days for BOC in memory of Robbie Schofield. 
  • Chris Robinson cycled 500km through Burma in 43C  heat in March raising nearly £1500 for Barrett’s  Wessex.
  • In April Barbara Dee celebrated her 70th birthday by asking her friends to donate to BOC instead of giving presents and thus collected just over £1,500 in record time.
Please share your experiences if you have fundraised for us and let us know if you plan to so we can support you.

 

 

  • October. A Gala Dinner in memory of inspirational teacher, Robbie Schofield tragically killed in a road accident a couple of years ago raised thousands of pounds for charity.Thanks to his brother Jack for arranging this in aid of BRAKE and BOC charities.

 

  • Alison Hainsworth (pictured right) ran the London Marathon in just over 4 hours, raising just over £2000 for BOC funds. “Had a great day. The atmosphere and support was incredible.”
  • Li Von Schack ran her 4th marathon for BOC, her second London Marathon for us, also in just over 4 hours and has raised a total of just over £10,000 from these 4 runs for BOC. Splendid.
  • Well done to both runners for their magnificent achievement.
