Halton Housing raises more than £3000 for Target Ovarian Cancer

20th March 2018

2 minutes

Last week Halton Housing staff hosted a trio of events to raise funds and awareness for Target Ovarian Cancer.

Halton Housing’s triathlon of events included a treadmill relay, then later in the day 25 members of Halton Housing staff and 3 dog companions put on their hiking boots for a woodland walk. And finally, the day of events was rounded off with an overnight stay in the spooky Norton Priory Undercroft where a local spiritualist communicated with the ‘spirit world’.

Debbie Jameson, one of the Halton Housing colleagues who organised the #TeamMo event said:

“We spent a night at Norton Priory Museum as part of a triathlon of events that took place on Friday 9th March. The event was planned to raise money for Target Ovarian Cancer Charity, but also to support one of our colleagues Mo Forshaw who is currently fighting this illness. We carried out relays during the day and kept the treadmill going for 6 hours. After this, we moved onto Norton Priory and did a woodland walk. The final task was to spend a full night sleeping over at Norton Priory – in the cold weather! The event was a great success and has raised over £3000 so far for Target Ovarian Cancer. We wanted to show our support to Mo, to let her know we are with her through her fight against this horrible disease.”

“We would also like to say a huge thank you to Norton Priory for allowing us to use the Undercroft for the spooky sleepover.”

The day of activity helped raise an impressive £1500, which has been matched by Halton Housing, so the total amount raised is currently at £3000. You can still help support #TeamMo and help raise funds for Target Ovarian Cancer by clicking here.

All donations are welcome, and every penny raised will be matched by Halton Housing!

Every year 7,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Early diagnosis can save lives.
