SURE applied for a grant under Southern Co-Op's Love Your Neighbourhood Local Funding Scheme and were awarded a grant of £750.
Vanessa Southgate, who works at Southern Co-op’s store in Bridgwater, said: “Because my husband is terminally ill with cancer, the store manager Charlotte approached me to see if we could suggest a charity to make a donation to. My husband Jeremy used to go to the bowling club where they used to run a lot of fundraisers for S.U.R.E so we thought this was really appropriate. I’m just glad that we have been able to help them to be honest.”
The donation will go towards updating some of the patient immobilisation devices used during Radiotherapy treatment, when the three Radiotherapy delivery machines at the Beacon Centre are being replaced in 2019.
