CASH founder Christine Callund with Mrs Parker BowlesThanks to a Cookham based charity, St Mark's Hospital in Maidenhead has officially received a DEXA scanner for the detection and management of Osteoporosis, enabling it to provide a local service for Borough residents. On Wednesday 15th December, Mrs Camilla Parker Bowles, President of the National Osteoporosis Society attended the formal opening. She was delighted that the fund-raising group had achieved such a goal in so short a space of time. Money for the scanner was raised by C.A.S.H. following its biggest request since it started in 1983. C.A.S.H. would like to thank all those organisations and individuals who supported this appeal. 


Our current appeal is for a portable Cardiac Echo Sound, also for St Mark's Hospital, costing 34,000. This will enable consultants to provide on-the-spot diagnosis, removing the need for a second consultation and further patient visits to the nearest monitor at Wexham Park.
