Bucks Free Press: Thanks to brewery for £50k fundraiser Thanks to brewery for £50k fundraiser

SCANNAPPEAL'S chairman made a special visit to Rebellion Brewery in Marlow Bottom this week to personally thank the 60 staff for helping raise £51,000 for the charity at their Open Weekend.

William Baxter presented each person with a Scannappeal ambassador badge which is given to those supporters who have ‘gone the extra mile’ or volunteered for more than five years.

He said: "We are extremely grateful to Tim, Mark and the staff of the Rebellion Brewery for raising such an amazing amount on behalf of Scannappeal.

"This has provided a significant financial boost to our appeal to provide equipment for a digital breast screening service. This will radically improve early diagnosis of breast cancer so helping thousands of local women each year. It is fantastic to get such support from a successful local business."

The fundraising at Rebellion has taken this appeal past the half way point and helped fund a digital mammography machine at Wycombe Hospital.

Scannappeal now aims to raise a further £250,000 for a second machine to help create a completely digital breast screening service for the Buckinghamshire area. For further information or to support the Appeal, visit www.scannappeal.org.uk or telephone 01494 734161.

Went on the first day (sat) and what a day. Weather was fantastic, beer great and the food was lovely, even a brass band.
It's a shame they only hold this every 2 years.
