Stratford Cancer and Eye Hospital Fundraising Appeal Committee
On 17 February friends of the Stratford Cancer and Eye Hospital Fundraising Appeal Committee gathered at the site of the new hospital to acknowledge the involvement of the local community and rally further support for the on-going campaign.
Attendees at the event have all contributed to the local fundraising appeal in some way; from organising events to volunteering or making donations. All the money raised for the appeal will be used to enhance the environment which will make treatment more comfortable for patients, therefore any size donation or contribution of time really could make all the difference.
Chair of the Appeals Committee, Jenny Farrell said; “When we started the appeal, the £1 million target looked a little daunting, but it quickly went from strength to strength. It is great that we have received so much support from the local community and I really would encourage more people to get involved and help make Stratford Hospital the best it can possible be.”
Denys Shortt OBE, Chairman of the Appeal commented; “It is great to see so many people here today who have helped to make the appeal a real success. As we look towards the future and reaching our goal, it’s important to remember the people who have brought us this far and thank them for everything they have done.”
