Bridge players are being asked to put their best hands forward by taking part in a charity tournament.

The competition, which is being run by the Paul Strickland Scanner Centre, will support people with cancer and other serious illnesses.

It will be held at Moor Park Golf Club, Rickmansworth, on March 14, kicking off at 11am. Entry costs £22, with lunch included and prizes up for grabs. Players are asked to bring their own cards.

The centre, based at Mount Vernon Hospital in Northwood, uses innovative scanning technology to diagnose and monitor cancer and other conditions, mainly for patients in Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Harrow and Hillingdon.

Claire Strickland, CEO of the Paul Strickland Scanner Centre, said: “We invest in the latest scanning technology because there is a clear link between accurate monitoring and diagnosis of cancer and other serious conditions and patient outcomes.

“Our highly trained staff have access to the latest in equipment and systems thanks to the support from our fundraisers, so please come along and support us.

“We’re very grateful for the support of Moor Park Golf Club, who are letting us have the venue without charge, as well as the bridge players who have already signed up for the event.

“Please come along and register for the event and show your support for people in your local community who are affected by cancer and other serious conditions and who need your help.”
