After hearing the informative talk from Rachel, the Whitgift Care residents from Whitgift House and the 1596 Club were given an opportunity to donate their money, they raised a fantastic £65.

“The talk about the planned refurbishment was very interesting, I enjoy visiting their shop at Croydon University Hospital, they have lots of different items to buy. I buy the jigsaws which are great fun.” Whitgift House resident, Daphne.

“An insight into the wonderful work carried out for the Children Oncology Department at CUH. A worthy cause for us to follow up with a coffee morning to raise vital funds for this precious service.” Care Officer, Jovita.
