About Dans Fund For Burns
This author has yet to write their bio.
Meanwhile lets just say that we are proud Dans Fund For Burns contributed a whooping 15 entries.
Dan’s Fund would like to join together with the rest of the world in expressing our sorrow on hearing about the Queen’s passing yesterday. It felt like she would live on forever but today we mourn the loss of the greatest of leaders, a truly astonishing monarch. She lifted the spirits of the country and united us time and time again all through her relentless service to us all. We have known no different and she will be sorely missed.
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth 21st April 1926-8th September 2022.
May she Rest in Peace.
A mix of rain and sunshine greeted our loyal golfing supporters at our Windlesham Golf Club Charity day on Friday 20th May. Better than driving wind and rain last year and scores were high as a result. Congratulations to The Dream Team, The Worplesdon Wallies and The Driving Divas for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places respectfully. The Woking Belles won the yellow ball competition with only 4/12 yellow balls returning home!! Lots of ditches and water at Windlesham 🙂
Its been a busy few days and I always love it when we can make those bank payments! This week, we’ve paid for 9 burn professionals to attend the BASC skin camouflage training course in May, funded the 3rd tranche of a tattoo to cover a young chaps burn scars, paid for some bespoke pressure garments for a young burn and a new bed for another! In addition, we’ve agreed to donate an ipad and netflix subscription to another patient about to leave hospital shortly too. Helping where we can to make burn survivors lives just a little bit better where we can.
This week we are excited to have launched our new look 2021 Newsletter. This can be found under our News section of the website and can be viewed as a flipbook on a laptop or as a downloadable link from the click down box.
Our thanks go to Tom Cornfoot from A Studio of Our Own for helping us to modernise the newsletter in line with our new look website :).
We hope you enjoying reading all the features and catching up on our news!
Princess Anne awards Polly Brooks, our CEO & Founder of Dan’s Fund For Burns with her MBE at Windsor Castle
It was such an exciting day as our CEO and Founder, Polly Brooks, MBE, received her medal from Princess Anne at Windsor Castle.
On a sunny but blustery day, Polly and her mother were lucky enough to be invited to the castle to receive the honour finally, having waited over 18 months due to COVID-19!
Pictures and updates to follow, but a massive thanks to all those who have supported her on this journey and have supported Dan’s Fund to help Burn Survivors the support they need to recover from their often live changing injuries.
