Julie Whitton has been appointed the new fundraising officer for North Devon District Hospital’s Chemotherapy Appeal.
Julie will support fundraising manager Ian Roome in guiding the Appeal from its current total of £1.3million to the target of £2.2million.
The proposed chemotherapy and day treatment unit will provide a modern, purpose-built environment for more than 8,000 patients in North Devon.
Julie, who has worked for the Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust for more than 20 years, said: “Fundraising and events are my passion and the Chemotherapy Appeal is close to my heart.
“My mother had chemotherapy treatment at NDDH and received wonderful care within the hospital.
“But the treatment rooms were small and isolated, limiting family members to be with her during the treatment.
“The new chemotherapy unit will make such a difference to thousands of patients and their families.”
