Fundraising Fun!

by Charlie Adams

A Monopoly-themed event and a gala ball, both held last month, have helped three women who are raising money for Breast Cancer Care Kent reach £115,000 in donations so far.

Georgina Hammond of local boutique developer Beau Property, her sister, Trina Little who is a barrister at Westgate Chambers and Tracey Crouch CBE, Conservative MP for Chatham and Aylesford, are hoping to raise as much money as possible ahead of their upcoming Mount Kilimanjaro charity trek.

The trio were aiming to raise enough for a new state-of-the-art breast cancer screening machine, which costs around £100,000.

Their fundraising events so far have included the recent Monopoly-themed night, which was attended by a wealth of familiar faces and was held at The White Bear.

The gala ball at Tonbridge School featured a silent auction. Lots successfully auctioned off included tickets for No. 1 Court at Wimbledon, which sold for £1,050 and a fully catered luxury ski chalet stay in Meribel, France for £3,900. Knight Frank’s Ross Davies, who is head of the estate agency’s Tunbridge Wells branch, auctioned off his sales fee in order to raise further funds. This is around £20,000 for a £1.2million pound property and eventually went for £9,500 to a very generous bidder.

Georgina Hammond said: “We are thrilled to have raised enough to purchase new screening equipment for Breast Cancer CareKent and are overwhelmed with all the generous donations and support from the community and businesses alike.

“Our heartfelt thanks go to each and every person who donated a prize, funds or their time in this mission.”
