CHRISTMAS came early as the our Scan For Life appeal received another early present.
For carollers came out in force to celebrate our annual Christmas Carol concert at Doncaster Minster despite the wintery weather.
The yearly event has become one of the most popular dates on the Doncaster Cancer Detection Trust calendar and young and old alike braved a chilly evening to gather for the traditonal seasonal gathering.
The concert raised another tidy sum for our appeal which has been raising funds to buy a new £600,000 state of the art cancer scanner for Doncaster Royal Infirmary.
Last week we revealed how the huge Siemens machine has now been installed at the hospital thanks to kind-hearted bosses, even though we are still a few thousand pounds short of our total.
Health chiefs decided to deliver the early Christmas present, confident that you, our big-hearted readers will collect the remainder of the cash within the next few weeks.
South Yorkshire Newspapers editor in chief Graeme Huston said: “We are grateful that so many people were able to enjoy an evening of music. We are confident the remaining funds for our appeal will soon come in to push us over the finish line.”
Donations can be made by visiting Doncaster Cancer Detection Trust at 4 East Laith Gate, Doncaster, with cheques made payable to Doncaster Cancer Detection Trust.
Funds may also be paid directly into the campaign account at the Co-operative Bank, account number 50326679.
Or get along to the Memory Tree in the Frenchgate Centre before tomorrow and make a donation there.
