Steve Grantham was diagnosed with throat cancer in April 2011 and received treatment for this throughout last summer,the Macmillan nurses based at the Sussex Cancer Center gave and continue to give valued support not only to me but my family as well. I am nearing 12 months post treatment and so far so good. As a way of thanking the Macmillan staff My family and I have arranged a charity cricket match to be held at Rottingdean Cricket Club, Falmer Road on Friday 17th August (where I and my 3 sons play) where as apart from a game we have a raffle with some excellent donated prizes plus a tombola for smaller donated prizes, there will be a few celebrities playing, actor Michael Jayston (our President), and National hunt jockey Mattie Batchelor (a friend of the family). There will be food available and the bar will be open, there is plenty of parking onsite. The evening starts at 5.00pm with the game starting by 6.00pm.
All monies collected on the night will go to the Macmillan Cancer Support Sussex to help them raise money for there new cancer center at the RSCH to give aid to patients and families who are/will be affected by this horrible disease (1 in 3 people are directly/indirectly affected).
