Every 10 minutes in the Aylesbury area, a patient is scanned by equipment funded by Scannappeal. This is a registered charity that aims to provide the very latest technology and equipment for hospitals in Bucks that would not normally be provided by the NHS. Over 40,000 people a year are set to benefit from their current fund-raising to improve diagnosis of cancer, eye, heart and hearing conditions. Of these, 23,000 are set to benefit from a digital and 3D breast screening service alone. You can help the cause and maybe help yourself, by buying their charity Christmas cards from the Cards for Good Causes shop in our church or by making a donation direct. Click here for their website.
