A Royal Opening for the Rosemary Centre

If you are a West Berkshire resident, you are likely to have seen collection tins or encountered friends or neighbours who have been raising money for The Rosemary Appeal. The appeal was the brainchild of medical professionals from the charities Newbury Cancer Care and The Newbury and Thatcham Hospital Building Trust who recognised the need for cancer and renal disease treatment facilities in West Berkshire.

At MAXX it is an appeal that we have held close to our hearts since becoming involved in 2016 when we were asked to help create the appeal's identity.

The community support that the appeal has generated has been inspiring and it has been an honour to be involved throughout. From identity to website, to fundraising collateral, videos and social media, MAXX has supported The Rosemary Appeal to achieve their incredible £5.3M fundraising target.

The Greenham Wing was officially opened at West Berkshire Community Hospital on Wednesday 27th February 2019 by the Duchess of Gloucester and while it is already open and serving the community it’s not too late to donate. Donations through The Good Exchange continue to be match funded.

The opening of the centre certainly won’t be the end of the story for MAXX as we have named Newbury Cancer Care as our official charity of the year.
