Hungerford Rotary Club's generous donation to radiotherapy appeal

HUNGERFORD Rotary Club has made a donation of £2,250 to the Brighter Futures Radiotherapy Appeal.

The donation, which was match-funded by the Greenham Trust through the Good Exchange, was presented to the trust’s fundraiser, Jane Leighton, at a recent Rotary Club lunch.

The appeal, which will help equip a new radiotherapy centre at Great Western Hospital in Swindon, Wiltshire, has so far raised more than £1.6m of the £2.9m target.

The new radiotherapy centre will provide the opportunity for cancer patients to be treated closer to home in a modern, purpose-built facility that provides a welcoming
environment during a period which is often an anxious time for patients.

The cheque was presented by Rotarian Barry Kempton, who has organised the quarterly draw to raise the money.
