The Rosemary Appeal Raise £11,000 at the Vineyard with Pam Ayres

Posted: Mar 20, 2017

As you may know, we recently held an auction dinner at the Vineyard hotel in Newbury. The black tie event included a delicious 6 course dinner, with guests including local artist Elizabeth Harwood and poet/presenter Pam Ayres.

We are delighted to say that the charity auction raised £11,000 for the Rosemary Appeal. Thank-you to everyone who attended and helped to ensure the event was such a success; the money raised will certainly help bring us closer to the final target.

The Newbury & Thatcham Hospital Building Trust and the Newbury & District Cancer Care Trust have worked hard to build a much needed renal dialysis unit and a cancer care unit at West Berkshire Community Hospital.

After several years work the charities are launching an appeal for fund on Thursday 6th October at the hospital.
