[M]embers of Crook Young Farmers’ Club (pictured) dug deep for Rosemere Cancer Foundation, choosing it as the recipient of the £1,050 it had raised for charity over the last 12 months.
A nine-mile sponsored walk around Kentmere Reservoir, a quiz night and a cheese and wine party at which local band The Woodsmen performed, donating its time and talent for free, were among the activities organised by club members to raise the money.
Club treasurer Amy Hardy said: “A number of us have been touched by cancer recently in one way or another and so the work that Rosemere does was a cause close to our hearts.”
Over the same period, Rosemere Cancer Foundation has invested £142,428 in projects benefitting cancer patients being treated at hospitals in Barrow, Kendal and Lancaster.
Rosemere Cancer Foundation spends the donations it receives on vital equipment, research and training that cannot be funded by the NHS as it works to bring world class cancer treatments and services to local cancer patients throughout South Cumbria and Lancashire. The charity also funds those things that can make the cancer journey a little more comfortable such as free access to complementary therapies for all newly diagnosed patients.
