Hospital chuffed with £19,500 steam fair gift

Organisers of a steam and vintage fair have donated £19,500 to help patients who use the Medical Day Unit (MDU) at Southport and Formby District General Hospital.

A cheque for the money was presented to Chief Executive Jonathan Parry and unit manager Sister Julie Marshall by three of the event organisers, William Hunter, John Johnson and George Harrison.

“This is a very generous gift and will be put to good use in what I know is very highly valued unit,” said Jonathan.

The Riverside Steam and Vintage Fair is held annually in April at Banks, near Southport, and all the money raised goes to local charities and good causes.  This year £37,500 was raised and altogether the fair has raised £206,885 over the past six years.

The medical day unit provides therapies and treatments, including chemotherapy, to patients across Southport, Formby and West Lancashire.
