poole hospital charity

Poole Hospital Charity is delighted to have been chosen once again as the nominated charity for Poole Festival of Running 2017. This year we are asking you to raise sponsorship money for the Radiotherapy Ward.

With 1 in 2 of us receiving a cancer diagnosis in our lifetime the Radiotherapy team at Poole Hospital have never been busier. The team treats on average 120 patients a day who have been diagnosed with cancer. Many patients will receive treatment every day for up to 6 weeks.

We are hoping to be able to buy equipment to improve how the team delivers treatment meaning more accurate results and less stress for the patient.

This year Radiotherapy has asked us for the following wish list:

  • A Bladder Scanner – which help the team deliver more precise radiation (£10k)
  • An Electrometer – to measure radiation doses (£6k)
  • 2 Televisions – for giving information waiting areas (£1k)

Last year over 300 people took part in the 5k race, if everyone who took part raised £25 sponsorship Radiotherapy could have purchased the Electrometer.

Similarly if every child who took part in the Minithons was sponsored for £10 the Televisions could be purchased. So this year we ask you to get yourself sponsored for whatever you can as the money does make a difference to the Cancer treatment we give to our community.

Poole Hospital Charity fund raises for all the wards and departments, but the hospital managed 35,220 radiotherapy attendances so this is an opportunity for Poole Festival of Running participants to make a real difference to Cancer services for our county.

FREEBIES!

All runners who raise at least £50 for Poole Hospital Charity will receive a complimentary t-shirt and over £100 will you will receive an official Poole Hospital Charity running vest. Exciting Stuff!

All runners in the minithons who raise over £10 will be entered into a prize draw to win an XBOX 360.
