Caplins Do The 92!

Event Date: 23 Feb 2020

My personal message

This coming February we will mark 10 years since Roz Caplin passed away. She was Mum to Deborah, Naomi, Rachel, Josh and Abby and wife to Bob. We miss her every single day and will never forget how she fought her battle against cancer with great dignity until her very last moments. Though it may sound like a long time ago, it feels like yesterday, and to honour her memory we, Josh, Bob and son-in-law Stephen Goldman, are embarking on the #92in92 challenge to visit all of the UK’s football league clubs in just 92 hours!

We are doing so in order to raise funds for two of the organisations who were so supportive through some of the most challenging periods during Mum’s illness: Chai Cancer Care and North London Hospice.

Chai Cancer Care provides comprehensive, professional and expert services to members of the Jewish community affected by cancer – patients, their families and friends.

As our Mum always took the utmost pride in her appearance, we have decided that monies raised from this challenge will go towards Chai’s Image Resource Service. This service provides a dedicated space where clients can address sensitive image issues and benefit from hair, wig, underwear, nail care and semi-permanent make-up expert advice. Clients can also receive make-up lessons and manicures as well as specialist advice regarding chemical-free beauty products and make-up.

North London Hospice provides high quality palliative and end of life care and support for patients and families living with a life limiting illness. Our Mum benefitted from the palliative and end of life care whilst at home, and we are therefore seeking to raise money to contribute to this wonderful service.

Thank you for supporting this challenge. It means a great deal to all of us.

P.S. Mum didn’t really like football but always made sure to put the kettle on as we were on the way home :)
