Sweet support for Scannappeal’s speech therapy project

A big THANK YOU to Sweet Charity, the Prestwood charity shop, who have donated £3,000 to our Speech and Language Therapy project. This will go towards the purchase of a range of equipment for patients with difficulty swallowing or impaired speech following a stroke, or with Parkinson’s disease, cancer of the throat, muscular dystrophy or head injuries. Marilyn Humphries, Director of Sweet Charity, said ‘Our aim is to support local groups with grants that we have available, especially those who offer brilliant services to people in our community’.

We need £10,000 to complete this project which will benefit 750 local patients each year at Amersham and Wycombe Hospitals. Items available for sponsorship range from digital voice recorders at £100 to a specialist monitor for endoscopes at £4,000.
