Star hopes radiotherapy unit appeal will reach halfway by Christmas

The appeal to build a radiotherapy unit in Swindon has reached the half million pounds mark – but patron comedian Rory Bremner is hoping it will be halfway to the £2.9 million target by the end of the year. He was at the Great Western Hospital yesterday to meet fundraisers and trustees of the Dr Thomas Cranston Trust whose £50,000 donation pushed the Brighter Futures campaign past the landmark figure less than a year after it was launched.
