Patients on Royal Preston Hospital’s Ribblesdale Ward will continue to enjoy their monthly “cocktails’ thanks to Rosemere Cancer Foundation funding.Advertisement
Rosemere has agreed to pay £35 per month for the next 12 months – £420 in total – to fund the fruit that’s used to make the cocktails and the range of fruit canapés that are served with them.
Staff in the RPH catering department make and deliver the treats to the ward, for serving by housekeeping staff.
Tracey Palmer, assistant directorate manager, said: “Fruit cocktails and canapes have been enjoyed by patients on a monthly basis for a couple of years now thanks to funding from Rosemere Cancer Foundation.
“It’s a simple little highlight that means a lot to patients and their families.
“We all want to see the tradition continue into the future and so are very grateful to Rosemere Cancer Foundation and all its supporters for helping to keep it going.”
