Today’s Speaker: David Pratt talking about Brighter Futures 

Brighter Futures are a department at Great Western Hospital staffed by 5 members …Soon to be 6 when Rotarian Michelle Leighton joins them shortly (Congratulations Michelle). The aim of Brighter Futures is to raise funds for various departments in the hospital to cover any areas that the NHS can’t cover 

E.g. Special care baby unit; art on the walls; toys for waiting rooms and of course the Radiotherapy appeal

David reported that the global grant application will be going to the first round of Trustees at the beginning of October, and if successful will be presented to the second round of Trustees towards the end of October, early indications look promising. If Successful, these funds should be enough to complete the Radiotherapy unit appeal.

Jane Leighton confirmed that the expected date for the unit to be up and running is early 2020
