Superman raises money for oncology day unit

Thank you to Alan Routledge who has raised over £700 for our oncology day unit at North Tyneside General hospital.

The money was raised in September, with Alan dressing up as Superman and shaving his head outside of Tesco in Gateshead where Alan is employed. Over £1,000 was raised with a proportion of the funds going to Cancer Research.  

Alan said: “I wanted to give something back and thank the staff who have been absolutely fantastic over the last few years”.

The money will help to provide the extras that can make a real difference – such as therapeutic treatments for patients undergoing treatment and the new oncology garden.

Our sincere thanks go to Alan and everyone who gave so generously to support the unit.
