The dinner, which celebrated Eid and was hosted by Professor Mohammed Munavvar, the chest consultant at the Royal Preston Hospital hosted 180 guests, who raised money through ticket sales, pledges and an auction.

Stall holders also attended and paid a fee, and sold sweets, artwork, clothing and crafts to raise money for the charity.

Held at Preston’s Imperial Banqueting Suite, the event also provided an opportunity for Professor Munavvar, who has worked at the Royal Preston for almost 23 years, to talk about his work and how support from Rosemere Cancer Foundation has enabled him to ensure the city’s hospital has had the latest in lung cancer diagnostic technology usually before any other hospital in the country.

Professor Munavvar, who is chair of the European Respiratory Society’s Interventional Pulmonology Group, immediate past president of the European Association of Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology and a former president of the British Thoracic Society, finished his presentation by detailing further new equipment he is hoping the charity will help him bring to Preston in the near future.

Also attending the dinner were Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s chief officer Dan Hill and Blackburn artist Kulsoom, who co-ordinated the stalls and led a team of volunteers to ensure the event’s smooth running. Among the volunteers was her seven-year-old son Nazir.
