The UK Garrison was extremely pleased to be able to donate £12,500 to the The Harley Staples Cancer Trust last Saturday.

The Harley Staples Cancer Trust cheque presentationThe presentation of the cheque was done at the Return of the Garrison event at the National Space Centre. The Harley Staples Cancer Trust is one of the charities we directly support with funds raised by us from non-charity related events we attended last year.

Harley was diagnosed with a rare leukaemia: B cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia Burkitt Type in January 2009 & left us in November 2009 aged just 8 years old. His parents set up the trust to raise funds to set up Happy Harley's Holiday Homes for children and teenagers, who have to live and fight a potentially life threatening illness, to use and enjoy, free of charge, with their families to create happy memories to cherish and offer fresh air and respite away from the hospital.
