Sobell House is Edgars chosen charity. It is local to our Oxford area and provides an amazing service to cancer sufferers and their families facing end of life. We have all been affected directly or know others who have been affected both by both Covid-19 and the tragic combination with cancer patients. The particularly distressing impact has been the limited access for families to be with loved ones during their final moments.
A link to the services and the importance it offers to families is highlighted in this film.
Sobell House faces significant challenges at this difficult time, in terms of providing this valuable end of life care and their reduced ability to raise money through their shops and with sporting events such as the London Marathon being cancelled.
In order to do something to help, all the Edgars team have committed to either running a distance 2.6 related, on roads, tracks or cross country; cycling 26 k, selling 26 sunflower plants, tomato plants, digging over a patch of garden 2.6×2.6 and auctioning off a promise of cakes and biscuits. Individual promises by individual Edgars team members will be promoted through Facebook and Linkedin. Email for details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please donate whatever you can, the small amounts soon add up and are all welcome.
