The Rotary Club of Oldham has presented its annual Community Shield Award for 2019 to Christies Oldham.
The Christie at Oldham was the first in a unique network of Christie radiotherapy centres.
It lets patients access first class cancer treatment, closer to home.
Christies Oldham have improved each year in their core targets, and now have a very successful outreach programme to patients, families and friends.
The award started in 2000 in partnership with a local company, Admiral Leasing, who donated the presentation shield.
The criteria use since that year have remained the same as a "Company going over and above what was normally expected of them in the community resulting in an outstanding contribution to the communities of Oldham."
