Still time to sign up for hospital scanner appeal sponsored walk
PUBLISHED: 11:00 07 August 2018
A sponsored walk in Uphill will raise money for Weston General Hospital’s scanner appeal.
The League of Friends of Weston General Hospital launched the fundraiser in 2016 to buy new digital scanning equipment.
The £400,000 equipment would create a new walk-in system for GP referrals, and mean people would receive a diagnosis faster.
The 4.2-mile walk will start at Uphill Wharf Café-Bar, in Uphill Wharf, on August 19 at 11am, but registration starts at 10.30am.
People will walk part of Brean Down Way, and reach Diamond Farm before returning.
There will be a 30-minute break at the half-way point, and free squash and water will be available, along with cakes for a small fee.
Visit www.waht.nhs.uk/steptoascanner to register for the event. Forms are also available from the League of Friends shop in the hospital in Grange Road.
