Car Dealership Goes Into Over-drive For Rosemere

Preston car dealership Robins & Day is turbo charging its support for Rosemere Cancer Foundation with a pledge to make the charity its charity of the year for the second year in succession.

Over the last 12 months, the Blackpool Road company has raised £2,679.77 for Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s 20 Years Anniversary Appeal to fund a trio of ground-breaking projects at Rosemere Cancer Centre, Lancashire and South Cumbria’s specialist regional cancer treatment centre at the Royal Preston Hospital, to mark the 20th anniversary of the centre’s opening.

Staff at Preston law firm Farleys Solicitors are celebrating a “misjudgement”!

This time last year, staff at Farley's Law pledged to raise £10,000 for Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s 20 Years Anniversary Appeal but a tally up of funds shows they have smashed this total by almost £2,000 to achieve just short of £12,000 for the charity.

They did it with a year-long fundraising brief that included a fashion show, a race night, sponsored walk and will writing scheme plus the promise that staff members taking on any individual sponsored challenges would also turn out for Rosemere Cancer Foundation.

Building firm steps up to support Rosemere’s Cross Bay Walk

Construction company Eric Wright Group is to sponsor this year’s 10th annual Rosemere Cancer Foundation Cross Bay Walk.

Over the last decade, the eight-mile, dog-friendly trek across the sands of Morecambe Bay from Arnside to Kents Bank has raised around £70,000 to support the charity’s work to bring world class cancer treatments and services to cancer patients across South Cumbria and Lancashire.

Hotel Acts On Its Guest List!

When regular guests David and Dorothy Hill had a suggestion for the award-winning Cedar Manor hotel in Windermere, its proprietors Jonathan and Caroline Kaye didn’t hesitate to act on it!

The Hills, of Bowness, introduced the Kayes to a charity close to their hearts, Rosemere Cancer Foundation, suggesting the hotel might like to put a collection tin on its reception desk. The Kayes however decided to go the extra mile – literally – with Jonathan running last year’s Great North Run to raise £850 for Rosemere, having chosen to make it the hotel’s 2017 charity of the year.

Chorley Golf Club Raises £14,550 for Rosemere

Chemotherapy treatment at Chorley Hospital has been given a major boost following a local golf club’s record round of fundraising activities in aid of a cancer charity.

Last year’s Captains at Chorley Golf Club - Geoff Charlson and Pauline Forshaw - chose Rosemere Cancer Foundation as their nominated charity, and after an intensive 12 months of events they were able to hand over a cheque for £14,550 this week.
