Raising funds for CyberKnife Cancer Radiotherapy Treatment
The Stan Bowley Trust have been donated £500 for the auction of a West Bromwich Albion football shirt. The shirt was kindly donated by former West Brom keeper Ben Foster, who now plies his trade at Watford.
The shirt which was obtained by Selwyn Burton, was taken to the Walton Walker and Sandwell Masonic Lodge, where the successful bidder paid £500 for it.
Selwyn Burton, who has been a long-time supporter of the Trust, said he was delighted with the amount the shirt had raised, he continued by thanking Ben Foster for his generous donation.
Rona Johnson, Chair of the Stan Bowley Trust was extremely grateful for the donation. She said, “It is gestures like this from that allow the Trust to keep up it’s good work, and allow us to continue to help those that need it most when it comes to cancer”
The Trust currently donates most of the monies raised to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham to help finance the clinical trials of CyberKnife. CyberKnife is robotic radiotherapy treatment which is able to deliver high quantities of radiation with sub millimetre accuracy, treating some cancer patients that were previously given no hope
