What a result! Through the efforts of generous Bury Free Press readers and charity stalwarts, our Beat It! appeal has smashed through its target.
Put simply, you have saved lives.
West Suffolk Hospital can now buy the up-to-date cancer scanner it so very much needs to help to detect prostate cancer early in young men.
That’s why you all gave up time, put in effort and went the extra mile to contribute and why families in future will be able to see their loved ones diagnosed and hopefully cured of cancer, rather than the horrible flip side of disease.
You biked, you walked, you put your hands in your pockets and you all helped. Beat It! brought our community together in a very special way.
Thank you to everyone who took part in fund-raising and donated – each one of you has made a real difference.
