Maintenance team raises £1750 for hospital cancer unit
Tuesday 3rd May 2016

Nursing staff from the North Wales Cancer Treatment Centre at Glan Clwyd Hospital in Bodelwyddan, Denbighshire, were delighted to receive a cheque for £1750 from Cambria Maintenance Services Ltd.

Cambria Maintenance Services Ltd carries out a wide range of housing maintenance works across Wales for Wales & West Housing. Its Northern office  is in Holywell, Flintshire.

Peter Jackson, Head of Cambria Maintenance Services Ltd, said: “We ask  our staff to choose a charity to support and the northern team voted for Awyr Las, the North Wales NHS charity,an umbrella charity for over 300 funds that supports patients in hospitals and patients receiving care and treatment in the community. The team wanted the funds togo to the North Wales Cancer Treatment Centre at Glan Clwyd Hospital, as this is their local hospital and many of them have relatives or friends who have received treatment there. The team wanted to put something back into the community and the centre is a great cause.”

Sharon Jones, Staff nurse from the North Wales Cancer Treatment Centre, said: “The monies raised for the North Wales Cancer Treatment Centre help to fund things such as state-of-the-art medical equipment, wigs and headwear for patients, complementary therapies to help people with cancer deal with some of the side effects as well as more comfortable treatment and rest areas for our patients, all of which makes a huge difference to enhance patient experience.”

Cath Humes, Partnerships and Sponsorship Manager for Awyr Las, added: “The incredible support from companies like Cambria Maintenance is greatly appreciated by staff, patients and everyone who benefits through the North Wales NHS Charity. This kind support within our communities makes a huge difference to help ensure that local patients can continue to benefit from the important added extras, both big and small, that go over and above what the NHS can provide.”
