Our Previous Projects

Since 1979 we have been fundraising to benefit cancer patients throughout Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin, and Mid-Wales. We have funded the very latest technology and equipment for hospitals in Shropshire, in particularly enhancing the experience and care of those who go through their treatment at the Lingen Davies Cancer Centre at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.

Ruby Appeal

To celebrate our 40th Anniversary back in 2019, we launched one of biggest cancer appeals, the Ruby Appeal, aiming to raise £1.25 million for local cancer services.

Children’s Cancer Rainbow Unit

The charity launched a cancer appeal for £470,000 to build a specialised children’s treatment unit at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital. The new unit provided en-suite facilities and an extra bed so that a parent could stay with their child overnight.

Cobalt Unit and Cancer Ward

When Bernard and Frank launched the Cobalt Appeal, they had a vision of bringing Radiotherapy services to the people of Shropshire. This original project raised an amazing £1.25 million, and led to the unit being opened in 1982, meaning radiotherapy cancer treatment could be provided to people locally.

Whilst we will continue to keep fundraising through our appeals for equipment to support cancer treatment, we are also working to help prevent cancer, encourage patients to seek treatment earlier, and support people to live their lives well – during and after treatment.

We're Also Dedicated to Help in Other Ways

Not only did the charity fund and deliver a full cancer treatment centre, but we have also supplied smaller items like mirrors for patients to check their appearance before they face the world again, and an innovative app for people to manage their symptoms.
