Some words from our charities…

“Thank you so much for your continued support this year, and for the wonderful donation of £2,400.30 for Cancer Research UK.

The Chatsworth Challenge 2023 was yet again another huge success.

Truly amazing support and a thank you to everyone involved over the years.”

“Thank you so much to everyone involved with the Dave Owens & Frank Goodall Memorial Fund for raising a brilliant £2,400.30 for Macmillan Cancer Support from your Chatsworth Challenge.

To put your kind donation into perspective £2,400.30 could pay for a Macmillan Nurse for approximately two weeks, helping people living with cancer and their families receive essential medical, practical and emotional support.

This is a fantastic contribution to Macmillan and a special way to remember Dave & Frank.”

“Like you, at Marie Curie we believe that every day of your life matters.

When you are living with a terminal illness you feel that more than ever. Thanks to your amazing donation of £2,400.30 raised from your annual Dave Owens & Frank Goodall Memorial Fund walk you will help more people to make the most of the time they have together.”

We would like to say thank you so much for continuing to choose to support the OPA and raise funds from the Chatsworth Challenge 2023.

This donation will make a significant impact on our mission to raise awareness and support those affected by oesophageal and gastric cancer.”
