Staff from the Fishergate branch of the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) ( https://www.lancashare.co.uk/directorydetail/finance/royal-bank-of-scotland ) have chosen Rosemere Cancer Foundation as their 2018 charity and have devised a calendar of fundraising events they are hoping will bank at least £4,000 for Rosemere’s 20 Years Anniversary Appeal.
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.
To enter costs £5 per team of four, inclusive of a hot pot supper and the chance to win prizes.
Donna said: “We choose a different local charity to support each year. This year, we chose Rosemere Cancer Foundation as through family and friends, a number of staff have personal experience of its work at Rosemere Cancer Centre and other local hospitals.
“We are hopeful of raising between £4,000 and £5,000 over the coming year. To help us get started, we would like as many teams as possible to enter our upcoming spring quiz and have some great prizes to be won.”
Cathy Skidmore, Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s trust and corporate fundraising manager, said: “It’s fantastic to welcome the RBS Fishergate team, helped by their Kirkham colleagues, to our band of corporate supporters. They have put together a great calendar of events, which I hope will not only prove successful but also, be a lot of fun for everyone involved.”
Rosemere Cancer Foundation works to bring world class cancer services and treatments to cancer patients throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria being treated at the regional specialist cancer treatment centre, Rosemere Cancer Centre at the Royal Preston Hospital, and at another eight local hospitals across Lancashire and South Cumbria that also look after cancer patients.
