Hospital dining out on donation

A PEAK District restaurant is the first company to support a new scheme which has doubled the value of its £3,000 donation to Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity’s Do Your Bit campaign.

Rowley’s in Baslow arranged a special evening featuring canapes, sparkling wine, a three course dinner, raffle and auction for 50 customers, to raise money for the £1.3m appeal, to create a new Cancer Suite and Treatment Centre at Weston Park Hospital in Sheffield.

Their donation has been doubled to £6,000 by Sheffield-based not-for-profit health insurer Westfield Health, which has pledged to match pound for pound donations made to the campaign, up to a maximum of £250,000.
