If you, a family member or friend is due to have a scan in the Aylesbury area, there is a good chance that they will be a beneficiary of Scannappeal. This charity, whose Christmas cards are available at our Cards for Good Causes charity shop in our church has raised over £11million for life-saving equipment for local people. It has funded equipment in every department of hospitals in Amersham, Stoke Mandeville, Wycombe and local Community Hospitals.
