NB TIM – TXT BLOCK HIDDEN FOR NOW

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.  
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.

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.
