Pulborough cancer charity awarded funds for vital equipment

Big funds have been awarded to a Pulborough cancer charity to pay for life-saving equipment.

The Sussex Community Foundation has awarded the Mary How Trust for Cancer Prevention £1,875 in its latest round of grant-giving.

The grant will go towards the costs of a relief sonographer. Practice manager, Gillian Weston said: “This is a wonderful gift, and it’s already helping with our ultrasound clinics. We’re grateful to the Sussex Community Foundation and its donors for their generous support.”

The Mary How Trust offers health screenings to spot the early signs of cancer and other serious illnesses.

Its service is entirely funded by donations from the men and women who come for health screenings, and from donors and fundraisers throughout the local community.

Sussex Community Foundation raise funds for and make grants to local charities and community groups across Sussex. It has raised £13 million to support Sussex communities since 2006.

It also manages funds of money on behalf of Sussex donors, connecting them to the groups and communities they want to support.
