In the week of St Patrick’s Day, Rosemere Cancer Foundation celebrated having the luck of the Irish on its side when members of Pendle And District Irish Society presented it with cheque for £2,380.
PADIS had raised the money over the last six months from get-togethers, raffles and the sale of Rosemere merchandise. Members gave their donation to Rosemere’s East Lancashire fund-raising co-ordinator Dan Hill with the promise of more to come in future months at a get-together held at Nelson’s KSC Club.
Rosemere Cancer Foundation spends the donations it receives on vital equipment, research and training that cannot be funded by the NHS as it strives to bring world class cancer treatments and services to cancer patients throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria via their local hospitals and three specialist regional treatment centres.
These specialist centres are the Rosemere Cancer Centre at the Royal Preston Hospital, Blackpool Victoria Hospital for blood cancers and Royal Blackburn Hospital for liver cancers.
