FCGAGA will be sad not to see Tracey Cockley at the this years Christmas Toy Appeal , for she will soon be leaving her post in the Hospital and Home Teaching Service on Acorn Children's Ward at Whipps Cross Hospital. So the least we could do was to buy her some chocolates and a farewell card for all that Tracey has done for us. Tracey and the other staff have always been polite and warm to me and my charity supporters whenever we have brought toys to the sick children over the festive period, we wish Tracey and her family all the best for the future and thank you once again.
Just when I thought life couldn't get any better Haslers Foundation / Accountants and Business Advisors go and send me a lovely bottle of Champagne to toast my good health , Thank you guys.
It gives me great pleasure to announce after eight long hard, emotional and unpredictable years that I have been declared cancer free of my stage four Non Hodgkin Lymphoma by my oncologist at St Bart's Hospital. It is impossible to put into words how I'm feeling right now but let's go with very humbled.
On Wednesday 15th August 2018 it was a honour and privilege for FCGAGA to buy and hand over six computer games which had been requested by the Young adults group of SFH, Romford. The group meets once a month and I was kindly invited to join them at their regular bowling session which is held at the City Pavilion, Dagenham. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting all the users, their carers and staff from the different hospices who were also present.
To all the users who attend the Young Adult Group, from all of us at FCGAGA we hope you have hours of fun playing with the various computer games.
Haslers Foundation Quiz Night
On Thursday 26th April 2018 Haslers Foundation held their annual quiz night which was at West Essex Golf Club in Chingford, once again Haslers Foundation kindly invited FCGAGA and other charities for a fun and eventful evening raising lots of money for many good causes. At the end of the evening the total raised was over £2,800, well done everybody , especially Haslers Foundation for a great event.
It was my pleasure to visit Acorn Children's Ward at Whipps Cross Hospital today but this time it was to bring some presents (Waleda beauty products) for the nurses who I think do an absolutely amazing job throughout the year.
.A big thank you goes to Jo Pemaul who chose our charity to receive some of their beauty products which were kindly donated from their Kindness at Christmas Campaign. I decided that the products would go to the nurses on Acorn Children's Ward at Whipps Cross Hospital.

FTS is a project which FCGAGA has been running for just over a year and a half now, the aim of this project is to give breakfast to homeless people in east London once a week on a Friday morning. I would just like to thank all the supporters who continuously champion this cause and continue to do so it is very much appreciated by myself and the people who your generosity helps to support.
At Christmas FTS paid for a cooked breakfast at Morrison's in Stratford for several Homeless people who we regularly give a breakfast bag to. Sixteen homeless people were meant to attend however the final showing was ten and they had a very pleasant time indeed. A big thank you to Morrison's who not only donated forty pounds worth of vouchers but made all of us feel very welcome throughout our stay, thank you once again.
A big thank you to Haslers / Foundation for all the support that they continuously give to FCGAGA over the years which has benefitted the charity so much. Just before Christmas they kindly had a Xmas hamper delivered to me which was a very kind and generous thing to do.
A big thank you to Gareth, Vicky and the fitness group ( Wanstead ) who kindly raised some funds for the FCGAGA charity this was unexpected and yet so gladly received.
