Malmesbury League of Friends (MLOF) has presented £25,000 towards the CT Scanner to be installed inside the Radiotherapy Centre currently undergoing construction at the Great Western Hospital, Swindon.
Following their three donations of £25,000 towards the Radiotherapy Centre itself, MLOF chairman David Hide and trustee Sonia La Fontaine were recently given a conducted tour of the centre, which is expected to be operational by early 2022.
MLOF Chairman David Hide said: “ We were delighted to support the installation of a CT scanner, which will mean that radiotherapy patients will no longer need to travel to Oxford for their initial assessment.
“ It was wonderful to see the Radiotherapy Centre under construction, knowing that it will shortly be undertaking vital treatment for patients in the Swindon area.
Jane Leighton, Brighter Futures Major Gifts Manager, said: “ We are so grateful for the further £25,000 donation from MLOF, making a total of £100,000, towards this project.”
