Our Vision and how your donations will be spent
This project is focusing in the first instance in two areas. Firstly, our priority is the people undergoing Cancer treatment; it is both daunting and emotional for all. Chemotherapy is very important, yet time consuming. We plan to make it as comfortable as possible for patients and their families. We would like to improve the waiting room and family room area of the Elizabeth Hall Centre with a refurbishment and comfortable furnishings. And to help pass the time waiting or receiving treatment, we want to give free Internet access, TV’s and games such as X-boxes and PlayStations.
Secondly, if we raise enough money we would like to focus on supporting the incredible work of the Cancer team, with additional technology to enhance treatment available at the NH NHS Trust. The teams’ ultimate dream is to have a Radiotherapy unit on the premises. Now that would make a real difference, meaning patients won’t have to travel miles to receive radiotherapy.
Eight years ago, the Trust received charity donations in excess of £200,000, in memory of Elizabeth Hall. That money made a real difference but they need more. Our initial aim is to go beyond that and maybe even double it, but we can’t do it without your help!
Over the coming months, we will keep you informed of our progress and share photos of our work, and interviews with patients and staff, so that you can see how we are making a difference – so watch this space!
