“I was diagnosed with Stage 3 melanoma in July 2022. After a successful operation and a year-long course of immunotherapy at Rosemere Cancer Centre, I have been given the all clear.”

Another colleague also had family members who were patients at the centre, with her grandfather ‘ringing the bell’ recently after recovering from prostate cancer and her mother being treated for breast cancer.

The donation will help fund equipment, research, staff training and services to make a patient’s cancer journey more comfortable and stress-free.

Sue Swire, fundraising manager for Rosemere Cancer Foundation, said: “We cannot thank the team at Whittles enough for choosing to support us with what is a diamond of a donation.”
