After weeks of training, Team Dedham took to the Essex countryside on a sunny September morning to run in the annual 10k Dedham run. The team made up of employees, friends and colleagues from Milsom Hotels had one aim to raise funds for the 2019 Club at the Colchester Cancer Centre of which Paul Milsom is the Patron. Team Dedham reached their target of £5,000 with Milsom Hotels topping up the final few hundred pounds to reach this figure.
The 2019 Club currently has 19 members from the local business community who have pledged to raise £2019 or more in support of this charity. These gifts will transform the care of cancer patients by increasing the number of patients it is possible to treat, creating a comfortable and inspiring environment, improving access to support, advice and information and providing a more efficient working environment for staff.

Almost £3m has been raised so far with just £265,000 left to find for this much needed facility at Colchester Hospital; construction of the centre is planned to start later this year which is really excellent news for the area.
