Charity Update - Captain Chris Harwood

Hello all - as you know this year we are raising money for Please Take MeThere - a great charity who children and adults with cancer the chance to fly for free to receive their medical treatment. Please see the charity page for more details and how to get involved. Thanks you for your support.

I have received this update from the charity which shows how the money you are donating is being used:

Dear Chris

We are delighted to share this story with you, which would not have been possible without your support. Recently, we flew Freya, a beautiful, two year old girl fighting brain cancer. Her mother, Christine, told us “We had a fantastic first flight experience last weekend. Thank you to Fernando, Steve and all at Please Take Me There for making Freya feel so at ease - she loved it!”

Unfortunately, last week Freya’s family were informed that her brain cancer has returned after her first treatment, and she will now need to receive treatment in Manchester. Please Take Me There is supporting Freya’s family by transporting them at the weekends to see relatives back at home.

Your support gives us and families like Freya hope and joy, and we cannot express enough how grateful we are for it.

Did you know that over the last five years, our founder Fernando Pinho lived rough in more than eleven airports, for over two months, to raise funds for children and adults with cancer? Soon, Fernando will do something remarkable, so that we can keep helping families like Freya’s, who are dealing with this devastating disease. We look forward to sharing more details with you next week.

With immense gratitude,

From all of us at Please Take Me There
