Charity night to raise funds for new cancer scanners

 Published on: 30th January 2019   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

A quiz night in aid of a charity which supports local people affected by cancer and other serious conditions will be held at Rickmansworth Golf Club in March.

The charity night will help fund local cancer scanners at Paul Strickland Scanner Centre (Mount Vernon Hospital) in Northwood. 

The funds will go towards new MRI, CT and PET-CT scanners at the centre and will help fund life changing medical research which also takes place at the centre. 

Paul Strickland Scanner Centre is an independent medical charity which provides CT, MRI and PET scanning to mainly local people. Staff at the centre use the scanners to help diagnose and monitor cancer and other serious conditions, and undertake medical research to help improve treatment and care for future patients.

Claire Strickland, the charity’s chief executive, said: “This should be a great night out, with great team and individual prizes, plus a raffle.

“High quality scanners and medical research save and improve the lives of people affected by cancer and other serious conditions. By joining us for the quiz night you’re supporting local people in the community who are facing one of the biggest challenges of their lives, so please come along and support them.

“We’re very grateful to the staff at The Fairway Inn at Rickmansworth Golf Club, for their support.”

With help from supporters, the centre scanned a record 17,400 patients last year, giving them and their families hope for the future.

The quiz night will take place at The Fairway Inn, Rickmansworth Golf Club, on March 1 at 7.30pm. Entry fee is £15 per person, which includes supper. Teams will consist of six people.

Tickets are available at scannercentre.eventbrite.com or calling 01923 886315 during office hours.
