Buffaloes raise £3k for Urology Treatment Centre

Our Urology Treatment Centre has been presented with a cheque for £3,000 by the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes.

The money was handed to Consultant Urologist, Stuart McCracken by former Chairman, Bob Gardner. Mr Gardner chose the Urology Department as the lodge’s local charity because of the treatment both he and Deputy Chairman, Derek Thaxter has received within the unit. They were joined by current Chairman, Dave Henderson who has selected the Niall Quinn Children’s Centre as the next chosen charity for the Sunderland based lodge. Fundraising has already started with a sponsored bike ride from Berwick to Sunderland.

The Buffaloes meet at lodges across the country every week and organise fundraising and social events to raise money for local good causes and charities. All lodges contribute to the chosen charities.

Mr Gardner, Mr Henderson and Mr Thaxter were also joined by Urology Ward Manager, Rob Common, Staff Nurse, Deborah Anconley and HCA, Margaret Old.

Thank you so much for this very kind donation!
