Hi, my name is Tony and I am recovering from Cancer! I have recently been in hospital for a month having a stem cell transplant. During my time in hospital I had many blood tests, and whilst talking to the nurses I said that it would be great if you could see the veins under the skin, to make taking blood easier and more precise. To my surprise, the nurse said there is a portable machine that has a screen similar to a large mobile that does this!
Tony’s set himself the challenge to raise £3,000 to purchase the vein finder for use on the haematology ward at Worcester Royal Hospital.
On Tony reaching his target, The Tracy Sollis Leukaemia Trust has pledged to donate a further £3,000 for a second one!
It is with much sadness that I learnt of the passing of Derek. A well known figure in Evesham who lived and breathed music. Derek inspired many young musicians, and the not so young, which includes me. All the time I have known Derek he has been a great inspiration, making music fun and challenging. It was his life.
Derek was a keen supporter of The Tracy Sollis Leukaemia Trust for many years. I will always remember, when on one especially bitterly cold winter’s day, he said, “let’s play carols for the Tracy Sollis Trust this evening”. He was not in the best of health at the time but was determined to stick it out in the freezing weather. It was only to be for half an hour, but approximately two hours later it was “come on let’s do one more”.
Thank you Derek for the pleasure, fun and support shared through your deep love of music. You will always be remembered with affection, Sue Sollis
