Law Firm’s Running Brief for Rosemere

cheque presentation Now, as 2018 sponsor of the annual City of Preston 10 Mile Road Race, Marsden Rawsthorn has been able to nominate Rosemere Cancer Foundation as one of the run’s official charities.

It is also hoping to have a staff team run the race, which this year falls on Sunday, 12th August, to raise funds for Rosemere. In addition, staff are planning to turn out for Rosemere’s yearly Walk in the Dark at the end of April, a carnivalesque, night-time 11-mile trek from Chorley & South Ribble Hospital along the A6 to Rosemere Cancer Centre at the Royal Preston Hospital.

Company charity co-ordinator Karen Birchall said: “Rosemere Cancer Foundation and its 20 Years Anniversary Appeal is a cause close to many staff members. Fulwood-based secretary Denise Groves is a cancer survivor and underwent six weeks’ treatment at Rosemere Cancer Centre. Other staff have also been treated there or have family and friends, who have been diagnosed with the disease.

“Throughout the year, we choose different local charities to support for three or six months at a time and although our formal period of raising funds for Rosemere Cancer Foundation had ended, we wanted to keep supporting it.”

Cathy Skidmore, Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s trust and corporate fundraising manager, who received Marsden Rawsthorn’s donation on behalf of the charity, said: “We are immensely grateful to Marsden Rawsthorn for this wonderful donation. We are also delighted the company has decided to keep its support ongoing through two upcoming iconic Preston area events in our Walk in the Dark and the Preston City 10 Mile Road Race.”

Why not volunteer?

During December Rosemere awarded it's annual 'Emily Dibben Volunteer of the Year' award at the Volunteer and Supporters' Night. It is always such a hard decision to single an individual, couple or group out for this acknowledgement, as we have so many fantastic people who go above and beyond in their efforts to support Rosemere. We are truly grateful for everything that you all do for us and couldn't do what we do, without your kind support and generosity.

Congratulations go to this year's recipients Norma Blackburn and Margaret Dunn who received their award from last year's winner Frank Dinsdale. Margaret and Norma are masters at organising fund-raising events in support of Rosemere and also attend so many Rosemere events during the year, usually running a tombola!
