Supporting the RUH in Chippenham, Melksham, Calne

The ‘Your Local RUH Cancer Care Fundraising Group’ was set-up in 2012 to raise funds towards the building of a new Cancer Centre at the RUH Bath.

They take part in regular community events, such as Melksham Food Festival, Chippenham Folk Festival, and Trowbridge Active Festival and also hold regular book and craft sales at the RUH.

The group meet once a month at The Angel Hotel in Chippenham to arrange fundraising events for the year.  The group have now raised over £60,000 towards the new Cancer Centre that will be built at the RUH.

Members include:

  • Bev Viveash (Chairman & Treasurer)
  • Carmen Barrett (Secretary)
