A sponsored walk across central Wales has raised £3,600 towards the purchase of two Ambulatory Infusion Pumps for patient use at the Hereford Macmillan Renton Cancer Unit.
Freemasons Colin Tudor and his walking companion Ian Talboys, as well as trustee Cliff Burkett, presented the equipment to chemotherapy staff nurse Helen Blundell and Macmillan cancer support facilitator Alison Stemp at the cancer unit in Hereford Hospital.
The donation is the latest in the continued support of Hereford Hospital by Hereford Freemasons. Colin Tudor has agreed to relate his experiences during his recent and successful course of cancer treatment to fellow patients about to commence their own treatment. Alison Stemp described Colin as ‘inspirational – an example to others’.
HRH Princess Royal, National President and Patron of the Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) recently launched the Herefordshire RiDeAbility campaign at the Hereford Holme Lacy Campus.
Presented to the Princess Royal was Cliff Burkett, secretary of the Herefordshire Masonic Charity Association, who initiated interest and awareness among local masons in the work of the Herefordshire RDA.
