The Official Golfing Community Fundraising Group of the Rosemere Cancer Foundation
One of the main aims of Rosemere Golfers Against Cancer is to promote the Rosemere
Cancer Foundation to Golf Club Captains and Presidents at the clubs around the Lancashire
and South Cumbria. We want to encourage them to adopt Rosemere as one of their charities
for their respective years of office.
Another priority is to build a network of corporate supporters, to encourage local
companies, event organisers and golf societies to adopt Rosemere as a chosen charity.
Situated in Town Lane, Southport, Queenscourt Hospice is an independent, voluntary
and charitable body mainly funded by what local people have given and continue to
give so generously.
Opened in 1991 the Hospice provides free of charge specialist palliative care to
an excellent standard; it plays a key role in the integrated clinical network for
palliative care in Southport, Formby and West Lancashire, working closely with the
statutory bodies responsible for such care.
Our Queenscourt at Home service is now in its fifth year of operation. It has been
very well received and our team of specially trained nurses have helped many patients
(and their families) to manage any crises or difficulties that occur and to cope
with their illness at home, which is where most people prefer to be.
The services include a wide ranging number of mechanisms such as the Stepping Stone
sessions for those who have been bereaved and a large number of training courses
offered to health professionals and patient carers in the Terence Burgess Education

Rosemere Cancer Foundation
Over 9000 people are diagnosed with cancer each year in Lancashire and South Cumbria.
Effective treatment is a major priority within the NHS but is expensive. There is
little left over for non-essential items that may make a difference to a patient’s
experience of the treatment process.
The Rosemere Cancer Foundation exists to provide these additional facilities wherever
possible in both the specialist regional Cancer Centre at Preston and local Cancer
Units in Lancashire and South Cumbria. In 2013, Rosemere aims to raise £850,000 for
research, patient welfare, additional equipment and training.
By supporting the Rosemere Cancer Foundation you are helping to fund projects that
are of direct benefit to cancer patients throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria.
