THANKS to Armstrong Watson Audit Limited – the Friarage Hospital’s MRI scanner appeal has received a welcome bonus.
The Northallerton based company chose the dedicated Friends of the Friarage Hospital as their ‘charity of the month’- a popular choice across the company with staff and customers alike.
The Friends have raised several millions of pounds for the hospital, tirelessly helping staff and patients and supporting the wards and departments with their incredibly successful fundraising and profits from their successful and popular hospital shop.
They are working in partnership with South Tees Hospitals Charity to raise £2million for an MRI (scanner – an essential piece of medical equipment used to investigate almost any part of the body) – at the Friarage Hospital.
Partner in Armstrong Watson, Peter Molyneux, said: “We are happy to be able to help such a worthy cause which benefits local people and to support our fantastic local hospital, the Friarage.”
Chairman of the Friends of the Friarage, Dr Upendra Somasundram, was delighted to receive the £250 cheque for the scanner appeal. He said: “We would like to thank everyone at Armstrong Watson for choosing us and we are very grateful for the donation.
“We much appreciate the support we receive from local people, businesses and everyone who has helped to raise money for the MRI scanner appeal. It is a very worthwhile cause which we will all benefit from.”
