Getting Quizzical for Cancer Fighting Fund

Wycombe Independent Fundraisers held a quiz for Scannappeal recently raising over £600.  A team of six helpers, led by Mary Walter and Gloria Allen, made a fabulous selection of dishes for the ‘quizzers’ who packed Marlow Football Club.  Quizmaster Bill Reid was in charge of the microphone and questions, with the winning team keeping it in the family as it included Gloria’s two sons!

The money will go towards our Cancer Fighting Fund for the urology department at Wycombe Hospital.  This £130,000 Appeal is to buy a state of the art 3D theatre stack system to treat patients with prostate, kidney and bladder cancers.  Jon Greenland, Deputy Chairman of Scannappeal and a consultant urologist, talked at the start of the evening about the difference these funds will make.  Gloria said ‘I would like to thank our marvelous team of helpers and we were so pleased to raise a good sum of money whilst giving people a fun evening out.’
