Society members also raised £103 for the charity during a revision time bake sale in the hospital’s education centre before the summer exams and £156 via a Christmas card competition and card sale.

Some joined the university’s Wilderness Medicine Society, a student medics’ walking group, to join Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s annual fundraising Cross Bay Walk over the sands of Morecambe Bay last month.

Rosemere Cancer Foundation provides cancer treatments and services to patients throughout Lancashire treated at Rosemere Cancer Centre.
