Thatcham Rotary Club give West Berkshire Community Hospital cash boost

THE quest to build two new units at the West Berkshire Community Hospital has been boosted by Thatcham Rotary Club.

As reported in the Newbury Weekly News, the Newbury and Thatcham Hospital Building Trust needs to raise £4.5m for a new renal dialysis unit and cancer care unit.

Thatcham Rotary Club donated a cheque for £500 shortly after the launch.

Club president Kamal Bahia and president-elect Ray Stowell presented the cheque to the trust’s secretary, Dr Rob Tayton, with their good wishes for a successful appeal.

Mrs Bahia explained that the donation was a direct result of The Great Thatcham Duck Race held this summer.

Dr Tayton thanked the club for its speedy response and added that the presentation was a great example of the club’s involvement in the community.

The club’s next fundraising event for the hospital is the Great Thatcham Santa Run on Sunday, December 18.
