Fundraiser Friday – YMCA in Consett

Today’s Fundraiser Friday puts the spotlight on the YMCA in Consett.

They have supported Bright Red since the beginning – supporting us at our events, as well as arranging fundraisers of their own.

As a group who do so much for people within their own community, sometimes it’s hard to believe that they still have the energy to do so much for us. But they do.

Tonight some of their team take on staff from McDonalds in a charity football match, as usual, we’re so very grateful for their efforts.

The match takes place at Consett AFC football ground. Kick of is at 8pm and entry is only £2 per person.

Come on you reds!


Chloe Brown 2016 Calenders Now On Sale

Artist Chloe Brown has produced two beautiful calendars, which are now on sale via EBay.

Chloe was inspired to help after her friend, Ben Hobday, was diagnosed with lymphoma. Ben received his treatment at the Freeman Hospital and thankfully is now in remission.

The Horse Collection and Countryside Animals are £15 each. 35% of that is donated directly to Bright Red.

Chloe has clearly worked incredibly hard on each of the paintings – we are so very grateful to her.

For more information on Chloe’s work, please visit her website.


Fundraiser Friday – Kevin Kennedy

As most of you know earlier this year we were gifted an office by Kevin Kennedy in Gosforth Physio and Wellness.

Kevin refurbished a room for us and doesn’t charge us a penny for the space. As if that wasn’t enough he also fundraises for Bright Red on a regular basis and donates a percentage of his profits.

Kevin says “One of our guiding principles at Gosforth Physio and Wellness is to help others whenever and wherever we can.

I know just how devastating these blood cancers can be. My wife Sumi is Lead Haematology Pharmacist at the Freeman Hospital and his mum Alice was an Oncology Palliative Care Nurse, both fight cancer passionately. Now I’m proud to be in a position to do my bit to help.”

We are eternally grateful for everything Kevin continues to for Bright Red. Our own future looks so much brighter thanks to his involvement.


Research Open Day

On Sunday 18 October a number of Bright Red and NEPAC supporters attended a tour of the Human Dendritic Cell Lab at the Institute of Cellular Medicine at Newcastle University.

The day gave supporters a unique insight into the amazing work carried out by Professor Matt Collin and his colleagues.

We are pleased to share with you Matt’s talk from the day. You can listen to via this link :https://campus.recap.ncl.ac.uk/Panopto/Pages/Viewer.aspx?id=cbf22936-f7e5-49f7-beb4-49c12a6e86d2
