Jump for SURE, a registered local community led cancer charity, raising funds for the Beacon Centre at Musgrove Park Hospital Taunton, to drive better outcomes for local people.
SURE's origin goes back to 1997 and a campaign to locate a new Cancer treatment centre in Taunton to stop people from across Somerset having to travel to Bristol for cancer treatment. SURE became a registered charity in 2004 and in May 2009 the Beacon Centre opened at Musgrove Park Hospital, Taunton, at which time SURE donated the CT Scanner/Simulator suite to the Radiotherapy department at a cost approaching £1/2M. SURE has already donated over £1.8M of equipment to the Beacon Centre which is now recognised as providing high quality cancer care to internationally recognised standards.
