REO UK has traded in its Christmas cards for charity this year, donating the festive funds to Lingen Davies Cancer Fund. The donation will go towards the charity’s ongoing projects with the radiotherapy department at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.
The funds will be used to purchase a specialised couch in the radiotherapy department at the Lingen Davies Cancer Centre. This follows a successful campaign in which the charity raised funds for a new Linear Accelerator (LINAC), which is used by practitioners at the Centre in radiation treatment of cancer patients.
“Healthcare is one of the biggest sectors benefitting from REO technology,” explains Steve Hughes, managing director of REO UK. “Many of the company’s electrical products are used to ensure a safe and stable performance of medical equipment. However, while this provides a high quality of treatment, this does not guarantee that a patient has access to the treatment and care when they need it.”
Liz Kyle, acting fundraising manager at Lingen Davies, comments, “As a small charity, Lingen Davies Cancer Fund is always grateful to local companies for their support, especially when it is chosen by employees.”
Liz continues, “Having successfully reached our £750,000 target to help fund the purchase of an additional LINAC for the radiotherapy department at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, we now want to raise an additional £166,000 to buy a specialised couch to accompany it. This donation will be put towards the couch and is much appreciated.”
