Christmas boost for £1m scanner appeal

Hospital team rally round to raise funds

Tameside Hospital’s £1m CT Scanner Appeal has received a huge cash boost just in time for Christmas.

Fifty-five staff at the hospital’s medical records team have been busy raising extra cash for the appeal by creating three fabulous hampers to raffle off.

Staff donated food, alcohol and scented gifts for the giant hampers.

Supervisors Sherrilee Jones and Karen Pendlebury then went around the hospital to sell raffle tickets to try and raise as much money as they could for the appeal, which is being supported by the Tameside Reporter and Tameside Radio. 

Other staff members Freda Brereton, Simon Wood, Michelle Cassin, Jenny Willocks and Matthew Adam donated their Kevin and Katie Carrots family to raffle off which proved highly popular. Freda even queued outside Aldi at 7am to make sure she got her hands on the Carrots!

All the staff in the department really got into the Christmas spirit by donating for the appeal and the management team and supervisors would like to thank all who supported the good cause.

A total of £732.40 was raised for the appeal as a result.
