The Lingen Davies Cancer Fund which raises vital funds for cancer patients throughout Shropshire and Mid Wales has welcomed a new member to the team and unveiled exciting plans for future growth.
Anna Williams – a former reporter for the Shropshire Star group – has taken on the role of Communications and Fundraising Officer for the Lingen Davies Cancer Fund which supports cancer patients and their families from throughout the area.
The charity raises money for the Lingen Davies Cancer Centre at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital which treats hundreds of local cancer patients every day. The current appeal will provide a new CT Scanner at the Cancer Centre, as well as part-fund an extension to the facility.
Helen Knight, Development Manager for the charity, said: “It’s a really exciting time for us here at Lingen Davies, we are delighted to welcome Anna to the team and know that she will continue to build on the excellent reputation we hold in the community.
“Like many charities we have been impacted by the pandemic but we truly believe that it is now time to push forward and build on the work done to date. We are building on our events programme now that restrictions are easing, and we have some really great ideas in the pipeline. All donations and fundraising goes towards our current appeal to fund a much-needed extension to the Lingen Davies Cancer Fund, as well as a new CT Scanner, which will ensure more patients can receive the care and treatment they need.
“We are proud to be the area’s main cancer charity serving cancer patients and their families throughout Shropshire and Mid Wales. We have a wonderful team of supporters but are always happy and keen to talk to anyone who may be considering fundraising for us,” she added.
