Sue Swire, fundraising manager for Rosemere Cancer Foundation, said: “The team at SBCA set themselves a huge fundraising target and to significantly exceed that in the current financial climate is just amazing.

“We are incredibly grateful to the whole team and everyone who has supported the company’s year-long commitment to Rosemere Cancer Foundation. The donation equates to a big pay-off for patients in terms of the projects we can put it towards.”

The money raised will go towards providing cancer treatments and services across Lancashire and South Cumbria.
