Kind-hearted people from Stoke-on-Trent and surrounding businesses have united to raise much needed funds for University Hospitals of North Midlands Charity to buy cutting edge equipment to benefit patients requiring complex brain tumour surgery.
18 teams took part in a fundraising corporate golf day organised by Barlaston Golf Club to raise cash for the equipment which will enable Royal Stoke University Hospital’s surgeons to precisely target all areas of a tumour. The kit includes a surgical magnifying camera system and a state-of-the-art laser system and will benefit hundreds of local people every year.
Barlaston Golf Club Commercial Director Terry Adnams said: "We’re ecstatic, not only did we have a good day, we raised a fantastic amount of money for UHNM Charity and the visiting teams had a fantastic day.”
UHNM Charity Director of Communications and Charity, Lisa Thomson said: "It’s been absolutely amazing, I can’t thank Barlaston Golf Club and their members enough, they’ve been so generous. The money they have raised will make such a difference to our patients.”
Barlaston Golf Club has announced it will host another fundraising golf day on Friday 16 June next year
Lisa added: “I am delighted that Barlaston Golf Club have agreed to host another fundraiser for UHNM Charity next year when we will be raising funds for our Staffordshire Children’s Hospital at Royal Stoke, specifically our neonatal department. The funds will go towards providing interactive rooms to support children when they have to come into hospital and the latest state of the art equipment for very vulnerable tiny babies.”
