Hard hats gave way to some hard thinking when staff from construction and infrastructure company Morgan Sindall, currently on site at BAE Systems’ shipyard in Barrow, organised and hosted a charity quiz night, which with the company’s match funding, helped to raise nearly £3,000 for Rosemere Cancer Foundation.
Staff from BAE Systems plus those from local supply firms were also among the 30 teams taking part, which equated to 120 individuals putting themselves to the test for the charity. The event also had a fundraising raffle with prizes donated by local businesses.
Morgan Sindall has been supporting Rosemere Cancer Foundation since last November during which time its Barrow-based team has raised funds through a Christmas card donation scheme and a Christmas raffle. They have also donated to office collection tins.
Rosemere Cancer Foundation works to bring world class cancer services and treatments to cancer patients from throughout South Cumbria and Lancashire being treated at Rosemere Cancer Centre, which provides all the two counties’ radiotherapy treatment among other specialist care and is based at the Royal Preston Hospital, and at another eight hospitals within the region that look after cancer patients, including Furness General Hospital where it funded Ward Nine’s Maple Suite.
