The annual Jazz Train returns this summer 16 June, aiming to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support and The Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre in Northallerton.
When Kevin Musgrave suffered renal failure for the second time, his wife Julie did not think twice about giving him one of her kidneys. And now the couple have handed over another special donation – more than £1,800 to the renal team at The James Cook University Hospital who supported them throughout their treatment.
A double donation of bladder scanning equipment has been made by the Friends of the Friarage to support local patients with the condition. The dedicated fundraisers, now in their Diamond Jubilee year, purchased the scanners – collectively worth £10,300 – for the community continence nursing team and the gynaecology department at the Northallerton hospital.
Staff and patients raised a cup to mark the start of building work on The Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre at the Friarage Hospital, Northallerton, as part of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. The annual Macmillan Cancer Support charity event this year coincided with construction getting underway on the new multi-million pound cancer centre at the hospital, which is being funded by local philanthropist Sir Robert Ogden, Macmillan and South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
