NB TIM – TXT BLOCK HIDDEN FOR NOW

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.  
The Bali Legends Smashed it at the Dubai 7s The dnata Bali Legends were delighted to play in the  Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby 7s this past weekend.  Entered in the International Vets, they played hard  to get through to the Quarters and then the Semis.  Unfortunately, an unlucky bounce saw us lose the Semi Finals. Our thanks go to our Sponsors, dnata, Herbert Smith Freehills, Silber Arrows, IT Document Solutions, Premier Inn, Binns Fencing, CBRE & Cignpost Diagnostics and to the boys who put their bodies on the line and made it to Dubai to support the team and Dan's Fund.

We hope you enjoying reading all the features and catching up on our news!
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.
On Sunday 10th October 2021, we had 18 runners take part in the Royal Parks Half Marathon to raise funds for Dan's Fund For Burns.  It was an early start but everyone was enthusiastic and ready having missed their chance to run in 2020 due to the pandemic.  It was an amazing day with all runners completing the race with some good times & pb's in the mix.   Karima Harris ran for DFFB and WON the ladies event with a PB of 1.25. Big Congratulations to her!  Karima and Dan's Fund also had a big shoutout  from DJ Sara Cox on BBC Radio2 on Monday evening.  Well done to all our runners who have raised over £18k so far! Thank you so so much!
