An Update from the Charity Team - July 2021
With the lifting of restrictions, it's been wonderful to see an uplift in charitable activity and support - thank you!
We do, however, need to remain cautious. If you would like to show your support for Rosemere, with a fundraising challenge or event, please do so in a safe and sensible manner. If you’d like to speak to a member of the fundraising team about your plans, please call us on 01772 522913 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
While many of the charity team are continuing to work from home where they can, our office in the Rosemere Cancer Centre at Royal Preston Hospital is manned on a daily basis.
However, as the safety of our staff, supporters and patients in the cancer centre is paramount, we believe it's best we continue to limit access to the public until we see an improvement in the ongoing Covid situation. If you can, please continue to communicate with us via telephone and email. If you do need to visit the charity office for any reason, please contact us in advance so arrangements can be made for your visit, to ensure someone is here to meet you. When you visit, you will need to wear a face covering within the hospital and continue to adhere to social distancing measures, staying two metres apart from others where possible.
If your query is regarding making a donation, you can see all the different ways to do so here
Thank you for your understanding and support at this time, and we can't wait to welcome you back with open arms when this is completely over!
All the best,
The Rosemere charity team.
An ask from the Charity Team, in response to the Coronavirus Outbreak
The ongoing Coronavirus pandemic is a difficult time for us all – for our patients and their families, our NHS colleagues, our volunteers and fundraisers, and everyone else affected across the region – particularly if they are currently going through cancer treatment or dealing with a diagnosis.
Across the region, clinical teams continue to provide world class care for those living with cancer. Cancer does not stop because of Coronavirus. The care that our clinical staff provide does not stop because of Coronavirus. Therefore, our mission to fund world class cancer treatment cannot not stop either.
Come what may, we must continue to provide the same levels of funding to life-changing projects, for the benefit of our patients.
As we’ve mentioned before, in line with government guidelines we have taken the decision to postpone or cancel a number of our flagship fundraising events such as our annual Walk in the Dark. While this is absolutely the right decision to make, we must also consider the financial implications and the potentially damaging impact of this on Rosemere Cancer Foundation, and the work that we do.
Could you, if you haven’t already, consider helping us through this incredibly difficult period by supporting us today? We understand this is an unprecedented, ever-changing, and often ever more difficult, time for many – so we absolutely understand if this isn’t possible.
But if you are in a position to do so, and you wish to help, you can give a gift online now – just click here to donate.
