Frimley Park Hospital has received a cheque for £2,080 thanks to the fundraising efforts of The Mall, Camberley and the generosity of shoppers.
In 2015, Frimley Park Hospital – Breast Cancer Appeal was one of the Camberley shopping centre’s charity partners, with a selection of fundraising undertaken for the charity. Staff at The Mall supported the charity by taking part in the Frimley Park Fun Run and donating their sponsorship to the hospital, as well as raising money at the shopping centre’s Retailer Awards.
Sally McLaren, Fundraising Manager at Frimley Park Hospital, said: “Support from The Mall has been a terrific boost to the Breast Team as the Trust will be match funding the Mall’s donation and has taken us another step nearer providing the best treatment possible for local breast patients.
“The charity is funding the specialist equipment that will show cancers and other abnormalities in the breast at an earlier stage which will give local patients a greater chance of successful treatment.
“Throughout the appeal the Mall has been very supportive and allowed the charity to promote the Breast Care Appeal in the Mall on many occasions and staff from the Mall have shown personal support for the appeal by participating in Run Frimley.”
In total, The Mall raised £2,080 for Frimley Park Hospital; and a combined total of £4,195 with their other charity partner, the British Heart Foundation.
Glenis Grossmith, Mall Cares leader at The Mall, Camberley, said: “We were so pleased to present Frimley Park Hospital with a cheque for over £2,000, which is all thanks to our hardworking staff and wonderful shoppers.”
