Oddie’s, which has shops in Nelson, Colne, Foulridge, Burnley, Padiham, Accrington and Todmorden, has collected for Rosemere Cancer Foundation through counter top collection boxes the first two months of every year since 2015.

With this year’s donation, it brings the total amount raised by customers since then to £2,751.38.

Rosemere Cancer Foundation works to bring world class cancer treatments and services to cancer patients from throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria being treated at Rosemere Cancer Centre, Lancashire and South Cumbria’s specialist regional cancer treatment and radiotherapy centre at the Royal Preston Hospital, and at another eight local hospital cancer units across the two counties, including those at Burnley General Teaching and the Royal Blackburn Hospitals.

The charity funds cutting-edge equipment, clinical research, staff training and innovative services and initiatives that the NHS cannot afford to make patients’ cancer journey more effective, comfortable and stress-free. For further information on its work, including how to make a donation, visit
