Construction and infrastructure company Morgan Sindall, currently on site at BAE Systems’ shipyard in Barrow, made sure it “spared” a thought for Rosemere Cancer Foundation when it discovered some surplus equipment.
Having advertised its spare construction access kit locally – the idea of construction manager Noel Talbot – it donated the £3,500 a Dentdale contractor paid for it to the charity.
Morgan Sindall has been supporting Rosemere Cancer Foundation since last November. During this time its Barrow-based team has raised £6,436.20 for the charity by organising and hosting a quiz, holding raffles, selling Christmas cards and donating to workplace collection tins.
Rosemere Cancer Foundation works to bring world class cancer treatment and services to cancer patients from throughout South Cumbria and Lancashire being treated at Rosemere Cancer Centre, the region’s specialist cancer treatment centre at the Royal Preston Hospital, and at another eight local cancer units, including that at Furness General Hospital.
It does this by funding innovative equipment, local research, training and other initiatives aimed at making cancer patients’ treatment journeys as stress-free and comfortable as possible and which would otherwise be beyond limited NHS resources.
