Great strides for scanner

Crown inn walk MRI Oct 2015An annual charity sponsored walk has boosted the Friarage Hospital’s MRI scanner appeal by a fantastic £3,616.40.

Keen walkers and customers put their best foot forward in The Crown Inn’s annual walk going that extra mile to help the scanner appeal on the seven mile walk from the Inn in Brompton-on-Swale, to Richmond.

Following their walk they enjoyed a fun day at the Inn including a free barbecue for the walkers, live entertainment, raffle, tombola and much more.

Morag Mackintosh, landlady of the Crown Inn has organised the annual charity walk for the last 15 years to reflect the needs of the community and this year the Friarage MRI scanner appeal was delighted to be chosen.

She said: “I would like to say a big thank you to the walkers, generous sponsors and everyone who helped to make it such a success this year. A thoroughly enjoyable day was had by all.”

Judith Masterman from the appeals office said: “The support we receive from local people and businesses is amazing and we much appreciate Morag choosing the scanner appeal for this year’s walk. Well done and thank you to the walkers and everyone who supported the event.”
