Big Celebration Generates Big Donation

Newsdate: 14th September 2007

Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Trust is delighted to announce that we will be presenting a cheque for £2,700 to the Mayor of Wigan in support of this years Mayor’s Appeal for local breast cancer services within the Wigan Borough.

Louise Barnes, a Non Executive Director for the Trust will be presenting the cheque, which was raised as a result of the very successful Leigh Infirmary Garden Party held in August this year.
Leigh Garden Party August 2007

The garden party was well attended by staff and local residents who were entertained by the Golborne Junior Brass Band and the Anvil Samba band. Children enjoyed face painting, bouncy castles and rides. There were also guest appearances from Darren Shaw, Leigh Centurions Rugby League Club, the Armed Forces, Greater Manchester Fire Service and the NW Ambulance Service. 

Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Trust is hoping that the garden party will become an annual event hosted rotationally on each of the hospital sites.
