Furness have made a donation to Rosemere

A rainy day savings account linked to Rosemere Cancer Foundation is making for a brighter future for local cancer patients.


Furness Building Society, which offers the easy access Community Savings Account and has branches in Preston city centre and Poulton as well as in Lancaster and South Cumbria, has given the charity a donation of just over £11,000.

The amount, which is from its own funds, is based on the collective total savings held by customers, who opted to link their Community Savings Account to Rosemere Cancer Foundation from a choice of other local charities.

“Rosemere Cancer Foundation is among these good causes for its work to improve cancer treatment for patients from throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria, which is also our neighbourhood.”
