Staff at Spire Parkway Hospital held two fundraising events in October and November and raised a total of £965 for charity.
The ‘pink day’ held in October, saw staff donning a range of pink clothing to support the annual breast cancer awareness month. The cooks amongst the staff whipped up an array of cakes, jams and chutneys which were sold to those with a sweet tooth and raffles and tombola all helped to raise £615 for Breast Cancer Campaign. This charity was established in 1988 with the aim of researching the cure for breast cancer. The charity aims to be the leading specialist in breast cancer research across the UK and Ireland, making a significant impact on breast cancer for the benefit of patients. www.breastcancercampaign.org
In November, to support Children in Need, a fundraising day was held and again, there were cakes a plenty to buy, raffles and tombola. A few pairs of ‘Pudsey’ ears were seen being worn by staff and the efforts of the staff involved helped to raise £350 for this great charity.
