Spire Hartswood Hospital raises nearly £500 for MacMillan Cancer Support

October 2010

Spire Hartswood Hospital in Brentwood held a charity Coffee Morning on Friday 24 September to raise money for cancer support.

The event was part of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning fundraiser which is for charity MacMillan Cancer Support.

As part of the event, staff and patients donated cakes that were sold and raised £497.30.

The event included a raffle and ‘Bake Off’ competition. 21 home-made cakes were donated for the competition and judged by Hartswood staff Porter Gary Hills, Housekeeping Team Leader Sara Hullett, Oncology Nurse Jackie Low and Chef Ian Scoging. The winner was Natalie Lazell from the hospital X-ray Administration team, whose “Rocky Road” was judged the best cake.

A special fruit cake was donated by Mrs Lynda Mashen from Billericay, whose husband Ian was treated at Spire Hartswood Hospital for almost three years and sadly died in May 2010. Ian had previously made fruit cakes for the hospitals oncology team to enjoy and donated one for last year’s Macmillan Coffee Morning.

Spire Hartswood Hospital held the event to raise money for MacMillan, to raise awareness of cancer and to show its support of the work that MacMillan does to support sufferers.

Hospital Director, Mark Gilmour said “Over 100 patients a year receive chemotherapy treatment at Spire Hartswood Hospital and are looked after by our specialist oncology nurses. During and after treatment with us, some of our patients also receive support from MacMillan so it was important to us that we could support this charity. The event was a great success and the money raised will help MacMillan continue to offer support to cancer sufferers everywhere”.
