The Lingen Davies Cancer Relief Fund raises money to improve cancer services for the people of Shropshire and Mid Wales, raising funds to provide new buildings and equipment, to give a more comfortable environment for local cancer patients. The new Cancer and Haematology Centre at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital was funded by £3.2m raised by Lingen Davies.
The new appeal is attempting to raise £350,000 in order to furnish and buy equipment.
The Great Walk to Work saw around 110 people walk from The Princess Royal Hospital in Telford to The Royal Shrewsbury Hospital in Shrewsbury. The chosen route was 15 miles, and took around 4 hours to complete.
Our target was a £5,000 contribution to the £350,000 appeal to buy furniture and equipment for the new Cancer and Haematology Centre at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital
The final total raised was over £10,000
For their efforts, Nick and Sally were named as Lingen Davies' Fundraisers of the Year
Louise Cliffe, Fundraising Manager at Lingen Davies, said: “I would like to thank Nick, Sally and the team for organising this wonderful event and all the participants for raising such a huge amount for the Charity. We are very grateful to them all for their efforts, thank you.”
