Ocean Brothers fundraising dinner

Help raise funds for the British Skin Foundation

On 25 November local brothers Jude Massey and Greg Bailey are hosting a fundraising dinner at the Chewton Glen in aid of the British Skin Foundation. 

Known as the Ocean Brothers, Jude and Greg will be rowing across the Atlantic, starting in January in memory of their late father and stepfather, Pete Massey, who passed away in 2015 after battling for many years with skin cancer. All funds raised by the brothers will be donated to the British Skin Foundation to fund vital research.

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, where 7 people die each day as a result of skin cancer. 40,000 new cases of skin cancer are reported each year and the number of people suffering from skin disease grows each day. Melanoma, the most deadly skin cancer, is now one of the most common cancers in young adults aged 15-34 in the UK and rates of Melanoma in Britain have risen faster than any other common cancer over the last twenty-five years.

To stem the growth of skin disease in the UK we need to explore the causes, helping us produce effective treatments and cures. Over the past 21 years, the British Skin foundation has supported over 360 high quality research projects with a total value of over £12 million, covering more than 50 different types of skin disease, including skin cancer. 

Many of us have been touched by skin disease or skin cancer, either personally or someone close. The Ocean Brothers give us a great opportunity to support the important research projects funded by the British Skin Foundation, whilst having a fabulous evening at the luxurious Chewton Glen (and a great opportunity to network with other local businesses!).

There are just a few tickets remaining for their fundraising dinner, many local businesses have already snapped up their tickets! The evening includes a three course dinner, with fizz to start and half a bottle of wine per person. A live auction will be hosted conducted by local adventurer and motivational speaker, Manley Hopkinson. 

The evening promises to be a great opportunity to network with other businesses whilst giving a great send off to the brothers before they depart on their transatlantic challenge!
