From ward rounds to making waves, a team of 12 staff from Rosemere Cancer Centre’s in-patient Ribblesdale Ward (pictured) is to take part in this year’s Rosemere Cancer Foundation Cross Bay Walk across Morecambe Bay to raise funds for the charity.
Some will be joined by family and friends when the walk sets out from Arnside Pier for the eight miles to Kents Bank at 3-15 pm on Sunday, 6th June. They will help make up a party of 300 walkers as that is the number of spaces allocated to Rosemere Cancer Foundation for the iconic crossing. To date, 258 places have already been filled, leaving just 42 available.

Another of its members, oncology clinical educator Amie Carr said: “Rosemere Cancer Foundation plays a big part in the care we are able to give our patients. This is our way of showing our appreciation.”
Rosemere Cancer Foundation works to bring world class cancer treatments and services to cancer patients from throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria being treated at Rosemere Cancer Centre, the region’s specialist cancer treatment and radiotherapy centre at the Royal Preston Hospital, and at another eight local hospital cancer units across the two counties.
The charity funds cutting-edge equipment, clinical research, staff training and innovative services and initiatives that the NHS cannot afford in order to make patients’ cancer journey more effective, comfortable and stress-free.
