Sir Matthew Pinsent with children holding gold medals

Four times Olympic gold medallist Sir Matthew Pinsent was happy to show his medals to the children at our golden themed tea.

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month worldwide and the gold ribbon is its symbol. So we celebrated with a golden themed tea for children who have or are in remission from childhood cancer.

Our golden themed tea. took place at the award-winning luxury hotel One Aldwych in central London. It featured golden eggs, blueberry brioche and playful flavoured candy floss, inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Sir Matthew Pinsent showed all of his four Olympic gold medals to the children, who were clearly thrilled.

Children who were there included six-year-old Hollie Evans who had leukaemia aged 14 months and six-year-old Luke Everett, who suffered from a rare liver tumour when he was only six months old. Seven-year-old Bethan Evans had Ewing's sarcoma aged five. These children surely deserved a golden day out!
One Aldwych also supported Childhood Cancer Awareness Month by illuminating their building in gold on 1st September. They give us wonderful support and have raised over £30,000 for our vital work so far.  

Huge thanks to One Aldwych and to Sir Matthew Pinsent for a very lovely day.
