The Three Wishes Charity is happy to announce the kind donation of £202 raised by Ashwood Residential Care Home in Ashton-in-Makerfield.

The cheque was presented by Sandra Shepherd, Manager and Lorraine Dale, Assistant Manager of Ashwood on 5 October. Also in attendance was Janet Irvine, Macmillan Lead Nurse for Cancer and Palliative Care, Catherine Cameron, ENT, Head and Neck Nurse Practitioner, Hannah Kulbacki, ENT, Head and Neck Nurse Specialist and Jennifer Mulhall, ENT Specialist Nurse.
