26 Years of BAGS Fund Raising - now over £480,000 raised

Lilly Pye (Community Fundraising Manager) following receipt of £24,205 from BAGS. This was the total raised from fundraising in 2021, with special thanks to Andrew McCaffery as the Lead Sponsor of the Charity Day.

With the ongoing Covid situation, we decided to delay our annual Charity Day until the end of September in 2021, and this proved to be a good decision.

We used all the resources available to us, including many 4 Ball vouchers kindly donated by golf clubs, and we were able to raise the tremendous amount of £24,205, taking our total over the last 26 years to in excess of £480,000.

Lilly Pye (Community Fundraising Manager) at The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity said:

"Your kind donation will support the funding of a Cardiac Output Monitor (LiDCO). This provides clinicians a second-by-second analysis of the flow of blood around the body by obtaining measurements from the patient's pulse rate and cannulas inserted into arteries. This enables clinicians to tailor treatment to a patient's symptoms and provide them with exactly the right amount of medication.

Thanks to your support we are also able to fund a Portacount Face Mask Fit Test System to more accurately fit test staff who are required to wear respiratory protection. This piece of equipment will allow staff to get effectively fit tested, maintaining safety, and enable us to comply with Health and Safety requirements."
