We are NCS group N0802 and we are doing a BBQ fete, Fortnite Tournament and Sponsored Walk for Cancer Research UK. We chose Cancer Research UK as our charity because we all believe that the work and research they do is extremely useful towards helping beat cancer. As cancer is one of the main killers in the world our group thought that it would be suitable to choose this charity. All donations that we receive will go to Cancer Research UK.

Cancer Research UK is a fantastic charity because in the last 40 years that have helped increase the survival rate of cancer by double. Donations towards the charity have enabled them to further their knowledge of the disease and work towards a cure.

Our BBQ Fete will be taking place on Wednesday 31st of July from 3-7pm, at Sherfield Green, in Sherfield on Loddon. Events taking place will include a 5-a-side football tournament for under 18s, carnival games and a raffle. Food and soft drinks will be available at the event.

Our Fortnite tournament will be taking place on Monday 29th of July from 5-7pm. Participants will compete from their own devices at home. There will be an entry fee for each player, 100% of the money raised will go towards Cancer Research UK, and once this fee is received the participant will be invited on the App Discord where all communications will take place. Each player will compete in five matches, with each kill worth a point and top 5 placements worth more points. The player who wins the whole competition will win the Gift Card prize available. The link to our discord is: https://discord.gg/DgherXV

The sponsored walk will take place on Thursday 1st of August, it will involve walking 10km with activities and challenges along the way. We will be walking from Basingstoke town centre out to Old Basing along canal walks, through woods and across fields before looping back to our start point.

Any amount of money you give towards our goal will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
