£108k and rising!

Although we have yet to collect all the money raised and still have more fund raising events to come, we have already raised £108k!  This incredible effort by everyone involved has blown our original target of £50k out of the water.  About £90k of this will be used to fund a 3 year research project into pancreatic cancer, which we are currently considering.  The intention is to create a memorial scholarship in Jackie’s name to fund this research, with the aim of raising a further £100k over the next 3 years so that we can continue to fund a research post on an ongoing basis.  Many of you have suggested doing other small events on your own to raise further funds for Team Jackie – that’s a fantastic idea and the more we can raise in this way, the closer we’ll get to the next £100k! Thank you all for this amazing effort!
