A Masonic donation, and a great meeting

April 2018

At a lively group meeting on 23 April, held as usual at Oxford Golf Club, OPCSG Chairman John Grundy received a cheque for £750 from the Master of Alfred Lodge of Oxfordshire Masons, accompanied by Tom Edwards.  We are extremely grateful for this continued generous support offered.  The presentation was followed by a fascinating talk by Professor Karol Sikora on ‘Proton beam therapy – the prostate conundrum’.  About 60 members were held spellbound by Prof. Sikora’s explanation of proton beam treatment, its application to other cancers, and how in time it might be a more relevant treatment for prostate cancer.  He told us about the planned work of five new Rutherford Cancer Centres, the nearest of which is in Reading, where proton beam therapy will be available.
