The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust currently receives no statutory funding meaning that we are wholly reliant on our amazing volunteers and supporters in order for us to continue our fight against childhood cancer.
Our Star Supporter initiative highlights individuals that have supported the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust in a consistent and positive way for some time.
This enables us to show some of the many different ways in which we are supported and also give us an opportunity to shout about our amazing supporters, giving them the opportunity to shine and be proud of their work and dedication to the charity.
Jeremy Robinson played professional golf on the PGA European Tour for 15 years and now plays occasionally on the European Seniors Tour.
Jeremy ‘s main focus now is running Blackstar Golf, a sports management company based in Worcester.
The company manages professional golfers and stages and promotes professional and corporate golf events, last year Blackstar successfully launched the Worcestershire Masters which was the first ever televised golf event in the county.
Jeremy has lived in Worcestershire with his family for over 20 years and one of his sons Ben is also a professional golfer. Jeremy was introduced to the GKCCT by Worcester rugby legend Chris Pennell.
Recent golf events ran by Jeremy have supported the GKCCT and to date have raised over £19,200. There are some exciting plans for 2022 and we really can’t wait to continue to work with Jeremy, we truly thank him for all of his continued support.
Dave Pagett has worked in IT for around 25 years and run’s a company called Page IT Solutions. He likes the outdoor life, running, cycling and going on adventure holidays.
Dave loves to give back in all that he does. He first noticed Grace Kelly Trust when he ran the Worcester ½ Marathon 2 years ago and after some research he really liked what the charity did and what it stands for.
In this difficult world, he would like to help children who have drawn the short straw in life, they never asked to be ill so if he can help them out by playing a very small part in raising awareness and some money then he is happy to do so.
Having supported the charity for a few years now, Dave has taken part in 2 x ½ Marathons, a sky dive and has recently purchased 75 branded cuddly toys which are to be used in our family new diagnosis packs.
In 2021, Dave took part in the Manchester Marathon and the 3 peaks challenge.
To date Dave has raised in the region of £1500 which is a huge amount of money, but it isn’t just the money that Dave has raised, it is also the time he has taken to support the charity and being an ambassador out in the community helping to raise the profile of the work of the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust.
We are truly grateful to have Dave on board and thank him for all that he does.
