For the third year running, the Burns Night Celebration in Altrincham has raised much-appreciated funds for MedEquip4Kids.  Nearly 100 guests attended the event, which was held at the  Cresta Court Hotel and featured traditional Burns Night fare and poetry followed by dancing. A fun photo booth provided extra entertainment and a fabulous raffle completed the night.

MedEquip4Kids Project Co-ordinator Evelyn Glarvey, who was at the celebration with her husband and friends, says: “As well as being a thoroughly enjoyable evening, the Burns Night dinner raised a fantastic £1,300, which will help us provide the extra equipment our local hospitals need. A special thank you to Garry, Graham and Brian for organising the event and for your continued support.”

“Infections of the central nervous system need urgent and appropriate treatment. Most laboratory methods can take from 24 to 48 hours for diagnosis of bacterial meningitis and three to seven days for diagnosis of viral meningitis or encephalitis. The new equipment will mean we can get results of these tests in around an hour. We’ll be able to inform the clinicians of a positive result, allowing targeted therapy and reassurance to the patients and families. Just as important is the reporting of negative results, which may enable treatment withdrawal and possibly a shorter hospital stay.”
