The company, which has supported Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s work for a number of years by making it the beneficiary of its annual charity fashion show held at Sunday Best, Rawstenstall, will add a race night, Will writing scheme and various other challenges taken on by individual staff members to a fundraising calendar of events it has now drawn up to get behind the appeal. The firm has also set up a Just Giving page at: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Farleys-Solicitors1
Antonia Love, partner at Farleys, said: “As a firm, Farleys has been a proud supporter of Rosemere’s work since 2006, in which time we have raised more than £13,000 for the charity.
“When we found out about Rosemere’s 20 Years Anniversary Appeal, we wanted to show our support and do something special as Farleys is very much a local company that works to support the local community. We are therefore taking on the challenge of raising £10,000 towards the amazing work done by the charity.”
Cathy Skidmore, Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s corporate fundraising manager, said: “We are delighted to welcome Farleys Solicitors as a fully- fledged charity partner for our 20 Years Anniversary Appeal. The company has made a very generous commitment to helping us reach our appeal goal of £1.5 million.”
Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s 20 Years Anniversary Appeal launched in March to mark the 20th anniversary of the opening of Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust’s regional specialist cancer treatment centre, the Rosemere Cancer Centre, at the Royal Preston Hospital.
The centre treats patients from throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria and through the appeal, Rosemere Cancer Foundation has committed to equipping it with the world’s most advanced robotic surgical system to enable more patients to undergo keyhole rather than open surgery.
The appeal is also funding a state-of-the-art research facility to give more patients the opportunity to participate in clinical trials in order that they have access to the newest medicines and therapies currently being developed and to the modernisation of the in-patient Ribblesdale Ward.
