The MCF Awards results are in… 1st place & £25,000 for CCHF!!! 🎉 🎉 🎉
The MCF COMMUNITY AWARDS results have been announced with CCHFund having been entered into the Buckinghamshire Charities category. The voting closed on the 31st July with over 177,000 votes being cast across all categories! The Cancer Care & Haematology Fund received the most votes out of the six charities nominated for Buckinghamshire area and has won £25,000 of funding!!! A stunning achievement that we are all very proud of!
The MCF COMMUNITY AWARDS were to celebrate 300 years of Freemasonry, and the Masonic Charitable Foundation held a public vote to decide how to spend £3 million of charity funding.
The votes were counted and the results announced on the 5th of September via Social Media and Emails! Dr. Ann Sibly – the architect of gathering votes – didn’t hear about the news until she was bombarded with emails from various parties this morning!!
Over 6,500 people were reached via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter posts (which you doubtless would have seen!), which worked alongside direct action from Ann Sibly, the hospital staff and local people connected by the CCHFund. Dr Ann did a number of interviews on hospital radio and 200 A4 posters, 4,000 leaflets and 4,000 business cards were produced by the tireless Richard Atfield.
However, the biggest thanks goes out to all those who voted and have managed to get CCHFund the top prize of £25,000 worth of funding. THANK YOU! The money will go into various projects which have lined-up in order to improve the quality of care for those patients with Blood disorders or Cancer at Stoke Mandeville Hospital. We will continue to support patients with Blood disorders or Cancer at Buckinghamshire Healthcare Trust by funding a variety of innovative projects, over and above the expected NHS provision!
