Money is continuing to pour in for our fantastic Miles Better Million campaign - and we can now announce the latest total.

Since kicking off the campaign in January, we’ve raised a whopping £26,000 - and while there’s still a very long way to go to reach the £1 million target, every penny brings us a step closer to bringing vital radiotherapy services for thousands of cancer patients to Doncaster for the very first time.

The town’s number one newspaper has teamed up once again with Doncaster Cancer Detection Trust and Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals to raise the huge sum to pay for a new scanning facilities at Doncaster Royal Infirmary.

Our campaign which will save scores of patients and their families emotionally difficult and tiring trips across South Yorkshire to Sheffield for gruelling treatment.

And Doncaster’s Yorkshire Building Society has helped boost our campaign coffers with a marvellous £500.

Small change from society members has made a big difference not just to our campaign, but two other charities in Doncaster.

Votes cast in the Printing Office Street branch have decided how £1,000 should be shared between the good causes in the Society’s Charity Choices campaign.

After a two week voting period DCDT received £500, The Mayflower Sanctuary received £300 and M25 Housing and Support Group received £200.
