Local business owner, Adriana Morgan, organised a Fun Day at her car business, The Tuning Company on Fabian Way, to raise funds for the Breast Reconstruction Unit at Morriston hospital. Adriana’s mother, also named Adriana, has been receiving treatment in the unit.
During the fun day, visitors at the business had a chance to purchase pizza slices and buy cupcakes.
“We explained to people what we were raising funds for and people were very happy to donate” Adriana Linciano confirmed “It has been such a success, we are planning to do another day again”.
Both ladies visited Morriston hospital to hand over the £150 that the event raised.
Julia Warwick, Breast Reconstruction Specialist nurse, was delighted with the donation “These funds really help us to support the women who are going through their treatment. By having these funds we can provide additional support groups and training courses that goes above NHS funding”.
Speaking about her treatment, Adriana said “Julia really is one of a kind, she cares so much about her patients. For me, it’s been a long journey, nearly a year, but I’m getting there now. I really wanted to do something to help”
