Our chosen charity for 2018 is – The Rosemary Appeal.
Here are a few words taken from their website:
- Since 2016 The Rosemary Appeal has been raising money for a new centre (The Greenham Trust Wing) at West Berkshire Community Hospital, providing essential facilities to the local community, including day therapy, chemotherapy, renal dialysis, IV therapies and a CT Scanner.
- Thanks to your amazing support we have managed to raise a significant amount of money so far which will be paying for the building work, essential equipment and staff training for the new centre. However, we still have £1million left to raise and therefore we require one final push in order to reach the final target of £4.5million, which will help transform the lives of so many.
- So please join us today, and together we can provide the care and support that local patients and their carers truly deserve.
In 2017 we also raised money for The Rosemary Appeal and were delighted to present a cheque for £700 to Dr Keith Endersby, a Trustee of The Rosemary Appeal at the AGM in November. This amount has also been matched with a donation by the Peter Baker Foundation thus raising £1400 in total. Thank you to everyone who has supported the society in 2017 and thereby helping to raise money for this excellent local cause.
