On 29 September 2011 the new Oak Centre for Children and Young People at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton was officially opened by TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. HRH The Duke of Cambridge has been the President of the Royal Marsden since May 2007.
Hundreds of people, including staff, patients, and the local community, waited to catch a glimpse of the royal couple. Upon arrival, they were greeted by the Royal Marsden's Chief Executive Cally Palmer and Chairman Ian Molson.
HAM's efforts in raising money to help equip the new unit has been recognised by the TCT which resulted in one of our members being invited to attend the official opening which in turn led to an opportunity of talking to the Duke & Duchess about HAM and the reasons why the committee was formed.
