Scannappeal raises funds to purchase life-saving equipment for Amersham, Stoke Mandeville, Wycombe and Community Hospitals which serve people living in Bucks and neighbouring parts of Berks, Beds, Herts and Oxfordshire. Every 10 minutes a patient in this area is diagnosed or treated with equipment funded by Scannappeal in the past.

Members were delighted to welcome Roy Collis , Deputy Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire and chairman of the Friends of Stoke Mandeville Hospital who is pictured with the president of Cheddington Women’s Institute, Irene Johnson.

Around 50 people attended and £386 was raised.

Raffle prizes were donated by Mentmore Golf and Country Club; the Haldi Indian Restaurant, Pitstone; The Clinic and Totality Beauty Treatments; Tring, Style Beauty, Wing; Mead’s Farm Shop, Wilstone; the Top Shop, and the Three Horseshoes Cheddington.”
