Building firm again steps up to support Rosemere’s Walk in the Dark 

Construction company Eric Wright Group is building on foundations first laid last year to once again sponsor Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s annual Walk in the Dark.

This year’s walk on the night of Saturday, 28th April, will be the charity’s 10th trek along the A6 from Chorley and South Ribble Hospital to Rosemere Cancer Centre at the Royal Preston Hospital. 

Over the last decade, 2,300 people have walked the 11-mile route. Collectively, through entry fees and sponsorship, they have raised just short of £250,000.

Hest Bank Dental Practice Keeps Rosemere Smiling

The practice team at Hest Bank Dental Care is ensuring it’s smiles all round at Rosemere Cancer Foundation having donated £1,257.56 to the charity’s 20 Years Anniversary Appeal.

To help the appeal reach its £1.5 million target, the Hest Bank team took part in a paddle boat challenge at the end of last year, which saw dentists versus dental nurses, racing against one another atop giant, rowable surfboards on a freezing Lake Windermere! There was also a collection tin on the practice’s reception desk for patients to donate loose change.

Charity co-ordinator Donna Finn and her colleagues, including those from RBS’ Kirkham branch, are planning a summer golf day at Ashton and Lea Golf Club, a winter ball, car boot sale, football tournament, sponsored static cycle in the banking hall and to kickstart their efforts, a quiz at The Wheatsheaf in Fylde Road, Preston, at 7-30 pm on Thursday, March 29th.
