ArCaS in £100,000 cancer care boost for the island

The Arran cancer charity ArCaS is to donate £100,000 to two health projects on the island.

The trust made the announcement at its annual meeting where it was revealed that the charity shop in Brodick raised a remarkable £111,210 in the last financial year to March. And with a further £24,421 received in donations it means the charity raised £135,631.

Now the charity has revealed it is to support a specialist cancer nursing service for the island. Initially it is to invest £30,000 a year for two years to fund the introduction of a dedicated team of nurses to provide palliative care for cancer patients. Although in its infancy, it is hoped the service will eventually provide 24/7 care when required for all cancer patients on Arran.
