This year we will be collecting donations for our chosen local charity, TEAM Hannah.
TEAM Hannah was inspired by our daughter’s eight year battle with a rare form of leukaemia which began in 2004 and Hannah has undergone intensive chemotherapy, radiotherapy, drug trials and two bone marrow transplants. Hannah is doing well at present and hoping to return to school in time for her GCSE exams. We have been supported by some amazing children’s cancer charities and hospitals over the years, and the aim of TEAM Hannah is to help them continue to treat, support and create hope for so many who are fighting this disease.
We are very pleased to announce that the trail is sponsored by The Head Partnership and Silver Street Studios.
The firm has always sought to play an important and involved role in the local community. We are keen to support the Caversham Arts Trail since it looks like evolving into a major local fixture on the calendar, and provides such a great opportunity for local artists to showcase their work. The Head Partnership Solicitors has offices in: Henley on Thames 01491 570900 and Lower Earley, Reading 0118 9756622. Visit their website at www.thpsolicitors.co.uk
