The new Endeavour Unit has its very own stars taking pride of place on a benefactors’ panel.
And a few more will be visiting the stand-alone radiotherapy unit at The James Cook University Hospital tomorrow (Thursday 28 June) to have a look around and hand over thousands of pounds they have raised for the department.
Their names will also be shortly added to a star on the panel – as each one is inscribed with the name of generous people who have donated over £1,000 towards cancer services.
Fiona Milnes, radiotherapy services team leader, said: “We wanted to take this opportunity to show some of the people around who have recently raised a staggering amount of money for us.
“All of it will go towards the Star fund, which was set up to raise funds to assist with future developments in department of radiotherapy and oncology to benefit patients, their families and staff alike.”
Some of the fundraisers include Leo Noble who, as captain of Crook Golf Club nominated the unit as the chosen charity for the 2011 season, raising £4,059 and Sue Snowdon – from Bishop Auckland Community Events also managed to raise another £4,000.
