Saturday’s fixture against Bolton Wanderers saw the Derby County Community Trust present Annabel’s Angels with a cheque for £400.
Annabel’s Angels is a registered charitable trust raising funds and increasing support for patients, carers and families living with cancer in Derby.
They work in partnership with Derby County Community Trust following the launch of ‘Active Recovery’ in November 2017, a cancer exercise and rehabilitation programme working with anyone who has been recovering from or living with cancer within the last five years.
Following the launch of the programme, Derby County Community trust staff Luke Wilkinson and Jack Bell spent a week hosting coffee mornings at local residential homes and the Community Trust office to raise the funds.
As a result of the money raised, Annabel’s Angels will fund a member of Derby County Community Trust staff to take part in a cancer physical activity training course which will further support the Active Recovery programme.
Ahead of the Bolton fixture Luke Wilkinson, Jack Bell and Paul Newman from the Derby County Community Trust presented the cheque to Annabel’s Angels patron Craig Ramage and trustees Mark Smith and Mick Doody.
Following the day Annabel’s Angels commented:
“Our trustees were invited to watch today’s match against Bolton. With a 3-0 win to Derby it really was smiles all round!
“We would like to say a big Thank You to Luke and Jack and to everyone at Derby County Community Trust for your continued support..”
