Business people from across the county came together at Quy Mill Hotel to celebrate the launch of Cambridge Roar this evening.
The Cambridge Roar has officially launched
The Cambridge Roar is a series of 18 events hosted in a window of just 23 days from 19 June to 5 July. The events are all fundraisers with the proceeds being shared between The Prince’s Trust and Arthur Rank Hospice Charity and will include a range of themed events with music and fantastic food.
The Cambridge Roar Chairman, Tony Murdock said “I am delighted for Roar 15 to partner The Arthur Rank, Help Our Hospice Campaign and we are all very excited to launch next year’s festival of events to raise as much as we can to help this fantastic local Charity. We are urging all local business people to get involved and really help to make The Cambridge Roar an amazing success for The ‘Help Our Hospice Campaign’.
The launch attended by over 100 people saw 19 pledges of support made on the evening with verbal pledges from many more of the elite guest list, all helping to get the fundraising off to a great start.
Donna Talbot, fundraising & marketing manager for the charity said ’Tonight has been a wonderful illustration of the quality of events which Quy Mill Hotel host, it was a great atmosphere and everyone was so enthusiastic about supporting the benefitting charities. We are really looking forward to June, it’s going to be a fantastic year for the Roar and we are delighted to be part of it.’

Arthur Rank Hospice Charity supports people in Cambridgeshire living with an advanced serious illness or a life-limiting condition and those who need end-of-life care. Our ‘Outstanding’ services are provided free of charge to patients and their families.
We care for more than 4,100 patients each year at our Hospice in Cambridge, the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech and in patients’ own homes via the Arthur Rank Community Team. This care supports people to improve their quality of life and fulfil their end of their life choices.
It will cost £10.5 million in 2021/2022 to run our services, which are provided free of charge to patients and their loved ones. We have currently secured £6.98 million from the NHS, meaning that £3.52 million needs to be raised through donations, fundraising activities and trading. We are extremely grateful to our local community for the continual dedication, commitment and generosity they show in supporting us to meet this target.
