You may, or may not, be aware that we have been raising funds to assist in the purchase of a bowel scope imager for the endoscopy department of our local hospital. This piece of equipment is essentially able to help guide the colonoscopy (fibrotic tube) around the colon and make it both easier for the professional undertaking the procedure and also for the patient undergoing it. We are delighted to inform you that the group has formally presented the bowel scope imager to our local hospital this week. This has only been possible through  YOU and your continued support and for that we would like to thank you. We thank those of you who take a collection box to receive donations, to those of you who undertake various sponsored feats of a physical nature, those who request donations to us in lieu of presents on special occasions, those who choose to make a regular monthly donation, the list goes on. We are truly grateful because it means that we can continue to raise the profile of bowel cancer for our local population but also, through YOUR donations, try and improve the diagnosis, treatment and care of bowel cancer patients in our area. 

We would like to thank each and everyone of you and hope that you are as proud as us to be able to say that we have assisted in purchasing this important piece of equipment.
