Dr Simpson said “Through word of mouth, donations from our patients and well-wishers, coffee mornings, bake sale, a quiz, a raffle and a charity concert, you have helped me raised £2,600 for the Bone Cancer Research Trust. This message is to give a particular thank you to the staff and patients at Parkside, who have been instrumental in helping me get to this amount.
Research done within the last decade meant my sister in law survived her bone cancer. Before that research, this would have been unlikely. This is just one example of how research benefits lives and I hope you can all join me in being extremely proud to have raised so much for such a good cause.”
