The Breast Research and Support Appeal – BRAS – has recently benefited from the support of Frimley Health Charity’s wonderful weekly lottery. Funds raised from regular players have enabled us to contribute £10,000 towards this fantastic appeal.
The Breast Research and Support team at Frimley Park Hospital are continuing to fundraise towards a dedicated research nurse. This vital addition to the team will enable breast cancer patients at the hospital to take part in further research trials and studies.
Kim and Sally, two of the BRAS appeal fundraisers were over the moon to hear about this additional £10,000 donation towards their target. Speaking on behalf of the team, Kim said “We are extremely grateful to Frimley Health Charity’s lottery supporters for donating to BRAS. This kind and generous donation provides a great boost to our fundraising and brings us closer to our £87,500 target.
“Our focus continues to be on providing the breast care team with a dedicated research nurse to enable their breast cancer patients to participate in national and international trials. We will also be able to ensure provision of valuable support to the partners and families of our patients, during what can be a very difficult time.”
Thousands of Frimley Health Charity supporters regularly play our weekly lottery which enables us to raise funds for a variety of projects that improve the lives and experiences of patients and staff across our Trust. Over the past 12 months, in addition to supporting the BRAS appeal, we have been able to continue to our Stroke appeal, purchase new equipment for our Physiotherapy teams, support staff welling, our Covid-19 response and Dementia.
Lottery and Fundraising Officer, Kirsty North shared “A key reason for running our lottery is to support a variety of different projects across our hospitals. Support from our players enables us to transform the experience of our patients and staff. We look forward to seeing the BRAS appeal team continuing to fundraise to achieve their £87.500 target”
