PistonHeads and Morgan raise over £1,000 for Worcester Oncology Centre
A popular motoring event, held Sunday 17th April at the Morgan factory in Malvern, has raised £1,000 for the Worcestershire Oncology Unit. Motoring website “PistonHeads”, holds monthly Sunday Service events across the UK, with the highlight of the events calendar being a visit to Morgan.
Around 250 cars and hundreds more owners attended the event at the Morgan factory on Sunday, each of them taking the chance to tour Morgan’s unique workshops. A full range of Morgan cars were on display and visitors each had the chance to take a short passenger ride in return for a donation to Morgan’s chosen charity, the Worcestershire Oncology Centre. The £1,000 cheque follows a similar amount raised as part of the same event in 2015.
The cheque was today (4/5/16) presented to Dr Chris Price, Consultant Oncologist and Associate Medical Director and Mr Adel Makar, Consultant Urological Surgeon and Associate Medical Director (Cancer Services) at the Oncology Centre. Steve Morris, Managing Director of Morgan and Jayne Jones, Events Manager, presented the cheque at the Oncology Centre.
Mr Adel Makar, Consultant Urological Surgeon and Associate Medical Director (Cancer Services) from Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust said:
“We are delighted to receive this very generous donation from Morgan Motor Company. It’s fantastic that a local company of such high esteem has chosen to donate to our new Oncology Centre. We are already transforming the lives of some of our most seriously ill patients in Worcestershire. The Oncology Centre’s aim is to provide the very best available cancer treatment, closer to patient’s homes. So I can’t thank Morgan Motor Company enough for this donation. Their contribution will support the Oncology Centre to continue providing first-class patient care.”
Steve Morris, Morgan Managing Director, said:
“We are honoured to present this cheque to staff at the Worcestershire Oncology Centre. The funds raised represent efforts from our staff and visitors at the recent PistonHeads event, and we are thrilled to provide continuing support to such a vital local service.”
