A little help from The Rock
It’s been a busy week for us, despite the weather doing it’s best to stop some of our plans (we had to postpone our car boot sale on Sunday due to extreme winds, but we will be doing an indoor one instead!).
However, the weather couldn’t stop us donating a Hospital Entertainment Package to the Children’s Ward at Fairfield Hospital on Thursday. This package was paid for as a direct result of some of the donations raised through the events we have participated in with The Rock, and we are delighted to be their Charity of Choice for the year.
Having spent so much time in hospital with Josh I know how important it is to fill this gap that the NHS simply cannot fund. It’s amazing to be able to make this donation thanks to the kind support of The Rock Bury and their shoppers! On a personal note this package is extra special as this is the hospital where Josh was born and it will always have a special place in my heart.

Linzi Atkinson, the Marketing and Tenant Liaison Officer at The Rock said:
We are delighted to be able to donate this much needed toy and entertainment package to the Children’s Ward at Fairfield Hospital. This has been funded through donations from our shoppers over the summer period to the Joshua Wilson Brian Tumour Charity via events at the centre. It means a lot to us here at The Rock to be able to help people in the local community through our partnership with this charity and we would like to say a huge thank you to our customers and The Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity for making this happen.
