— The Josh Carrick Foundation

“This was my first London to Brighton bike ride and it was an incredible experience. I managed to cycle the route in 5 hours and 15 minutes which, I am proud to announce, included a non-stop ride to the top of Ditchling Beacon – it was tough but the views made it worth it.  Thank you so much to everyone for their support and donations and I hope the money raised will go some way towards finding a cure for this terrible disease. I’ll definitely be back next year”

On the 6th July 2019 Alison Green opened her gardens to the public to raise money for the Josh Carrick Foundation.

On a perfect sunny July afternoon an 8-piece jazz band, ‘Stolen Moments’, and Flamenco group ‘Escuela de Baile de Londres’ entertained over 220 visitors. Guests listen to Jazz as the birds sang and the sun shined and explored the amazing two-acre piece of tranquil space in London, created by award-winning gardener Alison Green. The Flamenco group added some more colour and fun to a great afternoon.

The tearoom was manned by a host of volunteers, friends and family of the foundation and Alison, offering afternoon tea and cake, wine, beer, and bubbly! A huge raffle saw people walking home with sunflowers, candles, jams and much more, raising over £1,000.

The event raised over £4,000 for the Josh Carrick foundation, a lovely afternoon for a great cause.

Thank you to all who came along and supported and to Alison Green for her continued support of the foundation.

“Exponential-e chose the Josh Carrick Foundation as it truly is for a great cause and opened so many eyes to testicular cancer, especially the 80 young lads playing with us at the event, this event was a great success and even better Steve could be here to accept the cheque. We hope to continue raising for them in future and bring on the next channel cup in 2019”

The Josh Carrick Foundation was honoured for a sixth time as charity of choice for the Resi Awards.

Donation envelopes were left on each table for guests with a prize draw to win a visit to the Francis Crick Institute (a world leading interdisciplinary medical research facility and the largest of its kind in Europe).  We raised over £12,000 so thank you to everyone for their generous donations.

We were delighted to be able to provide an update about the Foundation and Trustee Laura Nyavie gave a fantastic speech – some pics of this below.

A huge thank you from all the trustees to everyone at the RESI Awards and Property Week for their help organising this opportunity for us.

The Francis Crick Institute is a world leading interdisciplinary medical research facility and the largest of its kind in Europe. The institute hosts world leading researchers, dedicated to tackling the biggest questions that face health research today. At the heart of the institute is a drive to promote cross-fertilisation between studies of different diseases. The revolutionary method hopes to promote sharing of research across disciplines, heightening the impact of key findings to reach a range of diseases. Cancer research is key within this, and the Josh Carrick Foundation are proud to be long supporters of Dr Erik Sahai, who recently moved to the Crick.

At the Josh Carrick Foundation charity fundraising dinner last November we were lucky to offer an auction prize of an exclusive tour of this incredible institute. Here are a few pics from the day of our JCF supporters Steve and Sue Lestrange on the tour.
