Over the weekend we sponsored a midnight walk from Chorley to Preston with a donation including clothing and t-shirt printing, which saw Gemma Darnell raise money for Rosemere Cancer Foundation.


Gemma carried out the walk to raise money for the local cancer charity after her partner Ian Tong was diagnosed with Lymphoma and our sponsorship included the donation and printing of t-shirts for those involved in the challenge.


The walk in the dark, starting at Chorley hospital and ending at Preston hospital is approximately 15 miles long and was carried out on Satruday. Gemma broke her target of £250 and has to date raised £1,065.00, you can still donate by heading over to http://www.justgiving.com/Ian-Tong.


Rosemere is our local cancer charity, raising funds for extra equipment and facilities for cancer patients in Lancashire and South Cumbria. Rosemere also funds vital local research, helping to provide the very best care possible for patients.


The Rosemer Cancer Foundation operates outside of the NHS whilst forming part of the charitable funds of Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The Trustees are the Trust Board of Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, who delegate the management of the charity to a Management Committee in line with NHS Financial Standing Instructions - crucially it gets no funds from the NHS and wouldn't exist without the continued support of charitable giving.


OBAS supports a number of local charities including Rosemere Cancer Foundation. Virtually every member of the team at OBAS has been effected by the impacts on cancer on family, friends and the larger community.


Over the year's we've been invoved in a number of fundraising events and activities such as Dragon Boat Racing on Preston Docs and climbing challenges (climbing the height of Ben Nevis) at a local climbing wall, in support of the Bowland Mountain Rescue.
