Patients at Chorley and South Ribble Hospital can look forward to extras thanks to the fundraising efforts of operating theatre staff.

A raffle was organised by staff from the hospital’s Vanguard Healthcare mobile operating theatre and prizes were donated by local businesses.

They raised £500 and Vanguard has confirmed it will give the same amount.

The money will go to the hospital’s Incubator Appeal, which sees money collected in old incubators and spent on improving the experiences and comfort of patients and visitors.

Ian Gillespie, chief executive of Vanguard Healthcare, said: “We are delighted with the enthusiasm and support by all involved and are pleased to match the total funds raised.

“This donation will help the hospital to provide more items for its patients and visitors, such as books and toys.”
