More than £4,000 donated to Royal Lancaster Infirmary Stroke Unit

18 December 2019

The Royal Lancaster Infirmary Stroke Unit has recently received a cheque for the fantastic sum of £4,300 from The Hornby and District Sheepdog and Sheep show Society.

This event takes place every year in August in Wray, raising money for different local charities. Around 60 sheepdog runners take part with a further 60 exhibitors at the Sheep show. Sadly one of the committee members, Ron Bargh, passed away this year and the donation also includes donations in his memory.

Margaret Wright, Secretary of The Hornby and District Sheepdog and Sheep show Society, said:

“We had a fantastic day and we were generously supported by many local businesses and the local community. We are delighted to give the proceeds to further the work of the Stroke Unit. Thank you for all the great work you do!”

Michelle Andersen, Stroke Unit Ward Manager, said:

“This is a phenomenal amount of money which will enable us to purchase some equipment to enhance patient care and recovery for stroke survivors across the age spectrum. The medical, nursing and therapy teams would like to thank the society for choosing us as their charity.”
