This summer, long-standing supporters Rotork Controls Ltd, became a member of the Brick Wall Club thanks to a donation through Rotork’s Charity Committee.
Rotork have supported the Forever Friends Appeal for many years and raised fantastic funds for the new Dyson Centre for Neonatal Care. Earlier this year members of the Rotork Charity Committee Zoe Averill and Lucy Dunn, came to visit the RUH to see what we have achieved so far and our plans for a new Cancer Care Centre. The RUH aims to replicate the success seen in the Dyson Centre for Neonatal Care and build a Cancer Centre which will balance clinical expertise with the provision of a nurturing and therapeutic environment.
The RUH clinical care is amongst the best in the UK, but the cancer unit facilities are outdated and uncomfortable, and do not provide patients with the positive environment necessary to support the healing process. The RUH Cancer Care Campaign is raising £8.5million towards the build of an exceptional new Cancer Centre for cancer patients and their families.
Following their visit of our current Oncology department, the Rotork Charity Committee decided to get involved and support our Cancer Care Campaign by joining the Brick Wall Club.
Zoe Averill from the Rotork Charity Committee told us “We are delighted to be able to support a local campaign, which we hope will go on to help people in our local community”
Corporate Officer for The Forever Friends Appeal, Louisa Smyllie, comments: “We are thrilled that Rotork have joined the Brick Wall Club to support the Cancer Care Campaign. Coming to visit the RUH is a great way to see the real impact donations can make and we hope others are inspired to join.’
