By raising funds for the East Kent Health Charity, you’ll be helping us with a variety of projects, including the purchase of new digital breast screening machines - which allow early and small cancers to be detected and so treatment started sooner, leading to increased recovery rates - and the purchase of a Neonatel Intensive Care Cot to help save the lives of dangerously premature babies.
