Diagnosed with cancer in 2001, Parveen Sheikh founded P.A.C.E to raise funds for cancer patients. She wanted her efforts to be spread from where she called home to where she knew there was a great need for medical advancement. She chose two charities to support, Scannappeal and Imran Khan Hospital in Pakistan. Since 2002 over 80,000 has been raised to help cancer patients.
Sadly in early 2009 Parveen’s battle with cancer came to an end. However, her hard work still resonates through P.A.C.E event and its supporters.
This year’s event took place on Saturday 3 September and so far a further £1000 has been received with many more donations pledged.
