It was organized by Holly Egan, president of the Preston Oncology Society, a group of third-year medical students from the University of Manchester on placement at the Royal Preston Hospital.

They all share an interest in cancer and its treatment.

Society members also raised £103 for the charity at a revision-time bake sale in the hospital’s education center ahead of summer exams and £156 via a Christmas card contest and card sale.

Some joined the university’s Wilderness Medicine Society, a walking group of medical students, to join the annual fundraiser for the Rosemere Cancer Foundation Cross Bay Walk on the sands of Morecambe Bay last month.

Rosemere Cancer Foundation provides cancer treatment and services to patients across Lancashire treated at Rosemere Cancer Centre.

The charity funds things beyond the means of the NHS, such as equipment, clinical research, staff training and services to make treatment more effective, comfortable and stress-free.
