Annabel Lintott was a Wimbledon Village resident for many years and highly valued member of the Bayley & Sage family. She died of ovarian cancer in February this year aged just 46.
In Annabel’s memory, and to raise money for Target Ovarian Cancer to support training for GPs in early diagnosis and symptom awareness, this Saturday (2nd October) a group of nine people will take part in ‘Coast to Toast’: a cycle event with a difference. The riders will start pedalling at the coast in Milford on Sea, Hampshire, stop at the Wiston vineyard enroute to collect trailers laden with wine and tow these up to Wimbledon Village. On arrival at Bayley & Sage, the team will celebrate Annabel’s life with a toast.
Jennie Allen, Bayley & Sage founder, close colleague and friend of Annabel’s said “as a woman who has had ovarian cancer twice and fortunate to be in full health, I believe it to be vital that we stop women like Annabel dying of this disease. Early diagnosis is crucial. This is a fantastic tribute to Annabel and a wonderful way to raise funds for Target Ovarian Cancer”.
11 women die every day from ovarian cancer, and early diagnosis is key. However, 4 in 5 women cannot name bloating as one of the key symptoms of the disease. The symptoms of ovarian cancer are persistent bloating, feeling full or loss of appetite, tummy pain and needing to wee more often or more urgently.
