We all had a great time at the 2016 ball and raised with our pledges £54k.  So many people have asked me to continue and if I dont, then less money will be raised for people with cancer.  Therefore, I shall be forging on and this is going to be my focus.  The next ball will be announced in May for Summer 2017, so watch this space.  A huge thank you to my wonderful friends and supporters who are always there  to support me, and putting your hands in your pockets. Research, Research, Research, I can’t stress enough how vital this is. You have all been part of the journey and helped me to achieve great things for those who suffer with cancer.  Thank you Mike Osman, Kev Orkian, Alex Ashe, Cord Electra for the entertainment and all those who came - You are STARS  
How it all started. My name is Tina I founded the Dave Wellman Cancer Trust in 1999.  I am passionate about raising funds to help beat cancer and to help support relatives and friends of sufferers. We are now pleased to say that we have sailed through the Quarter of a Million stage.... its been a passionate ride, meeting people who have made a difference and to those who are no longer with us. Dave, my late husband, died in August 1999 from lung cancer and I decided to run my first Ball on 1st April 2000, Dave's choice of date… his sense of humour was there until the end!  The first ball was to raise funds to thank Professor Peter Johnson and his team at The Cancer Sciences Building SGH who looked after Dave whilst he was poorly. Both Peter Simmons and Prof. Peter Johnson showed nothing but kindness and support to us both. Even when the news was terrible, we were made to feel there was some hope!
Newsflash - The Dave Wellman Cancer Trust   Ball raised 54k with our pledges - 2017 date coming soon! The wonderful Princess Caroline is ready to take the children on the annual childrens party on the water.  However, we are trying to tie up a date and news coming son. Thank you to Andi and Jay and not forgetting the wonderful staff for now funding this lovely day.  What a great bunch of friends we have made.  Rhian Jones entertains the children, we have our very own mascot Wellie the Elephant who keep the laughter going on this special day. A huge thank you also for your massive contribution in making the Piam Brown annual trip a wonderful day.   In 2013 I was delighted to not only win the Nat West Venus Woman in Business Regional award, but also the National.Thank you to Venus, Condor, and Nat West - It was a very  proud moment in my life and this truly does make you feel you have made a difference in all you do!   2015 is a very exciting year for us. I am delighted that we have been chosen as the charity of the 2015/16 Mayor of Fareham, Councillor Mike Ford, who will be closely supported by his wife, the Mayoress, Anne Ford.  Throughout the year, there have been many events organised and I would like to thank the Mayor and Mayoress and all those involved in making it possible for the Dave Wellman Cancer Trust to benefit from donations made in the coming year.  For the last 16 years I have been supporting the research programme in Southampton and now we look forward to the new Cancer Immunology Centre due for completion in 2017. On occasion I speak with the amazing scientists about the human and warm side of life as the family perspective, thus trying to engage people to understand how important working with the immune system is to combat this terrible disease. Although the majority of the money we raise goes into research locally, we continue supporting families and individuals in the fight against cancer. As proud Ambassador for the Cancer  Immunology Centre, I will continue to fundraise, embrace and support others in their fundraising, making them feel part of what will be an historic story in years to come. The campaign enables us to be part of a centre that will change the world in cancer science.  Cancer Immunology at Southampton.
