PEME Reliability Engineer, Laurie-ann Smith, was among a group of seven walkers (pictured) taking part in the Hunstanton-to-Wells coastal walk for Ovarian Cancer Action. In addition to sponsorship for the coastal walk they raised money through a prize raffle, which was organised by Laurie-ann.
The money raised will go towards developing new and targeted treatments for ovarian cancer. The Ovarian Cancer Action Research Centre drives new and more targeted treatments from pre-clinical studies, to clinical trials and into gynaecological clinics across the UK. The charity only funds research that can be translated into meaningful outcomes for real women in real life and they also work extremely hard across the UK to raise awareness of ovarian cancer, hoping to spread the word so less women die of this disease.
Laurie-ann said “The support for the raffle was overwhelming and I am extremely proud to say that the sponsorship we gained from the walk and the money raised from the prize raffle came to a staggering £1,747.89. I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to PEME and to everyone who supported us, without the kind donations and sponsorship none of this would have been possible.”
