This original appeal raised an amazing £1.25 million, and led to the cobalt unit being opened in 1982. This meant that the people of Shropshire and Mid Wales were able to have their radiotherapy locally, and set a new standard for cancer treatment in the region.
Funding Wards at SaTH
The original appeal also funded our first dedicated ward for cancer patients, including a flat where relatives could stay close to their loved ones while they were undergoing treatment. In 1995, the charity funded an extension to Ward 21, as well as a new space to house a new Linear Accelerator machine to deliver radiotherapy.
