Writing to the club, Mr Mellor noted:  "I am writing to sincerely thank you and your colleagues for helping us raise funds for a new MRI scanner.

"The MRI scanner assists our clinical teams to deliver care to over 10,000 patients per year."

Our Head of Media & Communications Mark Stevenson said:  "We are only too pleased to help raise funds for King's Mill.  We will continue to assist Chad newspaper, the main fundraisers, throughout the coming year in any way we can.

"We know of the importance of this type of equipment for hospitals.  It will, when bought, ultimately change the lives of some local people," he added.

An incredible £160,000 has been raised so far towards the purchase of the state-of-the-art MRI scanner, which will cost £750,000.
