Brighter Futures named as new Mayor’s chosen charity

The new Mayor of Swindon has named Brighter Futures as his chosen charity for 2016/17 ahead of his appointment on Friday, 20 May. Eric Shaw said: “Hundreds of Swindon patients are having to make an average of 40 journeys to Oxford or Bath to receive the radiotherapy treatment they so urgently need. Each journey they make is a 70-mile round trip, so the time, cost and stress experienced by patients and their families is enormous. I would encourage everyone to do what they can to raise the £2.9 million needed to help bring radiotherapy to Swindon. I am proud to be supporting Brighter Futures during my Mayoral year.”
