GEMS Charity – Fundraising has started with a bang!
Chemotherapy Treatment Suite Fundraising Appeal
GEMS Charity & Leicestershire Hospital Charities are seeking to raise 500k to fund a Chemotherapy Treatment Suite Extension at Leicestershire Royal Infirmary. This will increase the number of people receiving live-saving treatment. This article updates you on the great progress on the Fundraising Appeal so far.
A massive amount has been raised over the summer thanks to residents and businesses in Kibworth, Smeeton and surrounding areas.
We would like to thank everyone who has supported and helped us and the local businesses who have sponsored events. We are over £118,000 towards reaching our enormous target.
