The Rotary Club of Tynemouth has raised £1,000 to support those suffering from prostate cancer.
The donation was presented to Pauline Buglass, head of fundraising for the Newcastle Urology Fund at the club’s weekly meeting at the Village Hotel, Silverlink.
The Newcastle Urology Fund has been formed by bringing together a number of existing charity funds.
The urology centre at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle is recognised as having one of the top clinical research programmes in Europe.
The rotary club’s president-elect Archie McGlynn said: “I was delighted to be able to present Pauline with the £1,000 cheque from one of our president’s choice of yearly charities.
“Included in the amount was £410.48p collected at Morrisons in North Shields.
“We were all impressed with Pauline’s talk as she outlined the many functions covered by her as the head of fundraising for the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Charity, which includes prostate cancer.”
Pauline said: “I must thank the Rotary Club of Tynemouth and the shoppers at Morrisons, North Shields, for this wonderful cheque.”
“The charitable donations that we receive enables us to complement the NHS resources available and allows us to achieve things more quickly than would otherwise be possible.
“Such support helps us to enhance and improve the treatment and care of future patients.”
