Chai raises awareness at the double
Chai Cancer Care enjoyed a long distance double with the formal opening of its Manchester satellite service staged on the same day as a dinner in its honour hosted by Barnet Mayor Councillor John Marshall. Held at Middlesex University, the dinner marked the end of the mayor’s charity appeal year, for which Chai is one of two beneficiaries.
The Manchester service is in partnership with The Fed and Heathlands and over 200 people were at the launch to hear Dr Jeremy Nathan compliment Chai on its services and explain why carers needed equal support.
The Barnet dinner was addressed by Martin Bell, who spoke about his journalistic career and time as an independent MP. His take on the expenses scandal was that 100 MPs had cause to resign.
Prior to the dinner, the appeal had raised £70,000 in support of Chai and Barnet Carers.
