Big quiz to­tal

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

NORTH­WOOD: A quiz night at Rick­mansworth Golf Club has raised more than £2,000 for the Paul Strick­land Scan­ner Cen­tre.

The cen­tre based at the Mount Ver­non Hospi­tal in North­wood, was es­tab­lished by Dr Paul Strick­land in 1985.

To cel­e­brate its 30th an­niver­sary it is fundrais­ing for a new state-of-the-art CT scan­ner at a cost of over £1 mil­lion.

Nine­teen teams bat­tled at the quiz on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 16 and Bar­clays Bank had pledged to match what was made on the night.

Paul Strick­land Scan­ner Cen­tre pro­vides early di­ag­no­sis and mon­i­tor­ing of can­cer and life-lim­it­ing ill­nesses. It also undertakes med­i­cal re­search which is help­ing to im­prove doc­tors’ un­der­stand­ing of can­cer and can­cer treat­ments. A TIRED look­ing bridge over Botwell Canal in Hayes has been re­vi­talised af­ter a thor­ough clean up.

Hilling­don Coun­cil car­ried out the clean as part of its £6m re­gen­er­a­tion pro­gramme for Hayes town cen­tre which is due to be com­pleted in spring 2017.

The coun­cil say the in­vest­ment will make Hayes more at­trac­tive for res­i­dents, busi­nesses and vis­i­tors.
