Cheque Presented the Derby Royal Hospital by Kath Lomas

Founder of this website Richard Lomas suffered from Pancreatitis before his death. His widow Kath Lomas went to Derby Royal Hospital yesterday and handed over a cheque for £4000 in Richard's memory for Pancreatitis Research. The cheque was handed to consultant Mr Awan who looked after Richard. during his six months stay in hospital. Kath's daughter in law who works for Lloyds TSB has also presented a cheque to the hospital for the Intensive Care Unit. Kath would like to thank everyone who made a donation at the funeral, people who have bought some of Richard's transport memorabilia collection either at rallies, or on Ebay, friends in Tangent Ladies Club and anyone else she has failed to mention. The money for the Intensive Care Unit was used towards new sofa beds for the family bedsits available for intensive care patients' families at the hospital, which Kath and the family used on many fraught occasions when they were afraid to go home.
