Members of Withybush Hospital’s Cancer Day Unit nursing team were delighted to join local fundraisers recently outside the hospital to accept a cheque from Helen Coles and Penny Lees - who both completed a challenging five day West to East cycle journey across England (covering some 200 plus miles) in aid of the CDU.
Helen, an ex-patient at the Unit, received amazing support from friends and family, raising an incredible £5,675 in the process.
“The journey was pretty gruelling in places and took us a number of days to complete,” she said.
“The response we had from supporters drove us on to complete the challenge for such a worthy cause.
“As an ex-patient I know only too well how important the Cancer Day Unit at Withybush is to local people and we are lucky to have a first class nursing team who helped me through my treatment.
