Student's sweet success is a treat for Rosemere

Westholme's INSPIRED Sixth Formers were delighted over a cheque for £500 to the Rosemere Cancer Foundation charity, with money that they had raised through sales from Westies shop.

The donation was made up of an impressive £250 tuck shop profit, which was then matched by the school to round up the donation to £500.

Teacher and shop lead Mrs Maxine Law said: “We, as members of the Blackburn and Darwen community, have seen Rosemere Cancer Foundation as an inspiring charity and it has given us a profound interest in donating to enable better care of cancer patients in Lancashire and South Cumbria.

“Many of us have witnessed the first-hand effects cancer has on families. We want to accelerate the progress already made in improving cancer care and facilities and believe our donation will have a positive impact.”

Mrs Law and the Westies team presented their donation to Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s events and community fundraiser Yvonne Stott, who they welcomed to school. Yvonne said: “I really enjoyed my visit. The students were really kind and passionate about doing something good locally.”

Rosemere Cancer Foundation fundraises to bring world class cancer treatments and services to cancer patients being treated at eight hospitals throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria, as well as at Rosemere Cancer Centre at the Royal Preston Hospital. The cancer centre is the region’s specialist cancer treatment and radiotherapy centre.

The charity funds cutting edge equipment, research, training and other cancer services and therapies that are beyond limited NHS resources. To find out more about its work and to make a donation, visit
