Generous Grandfather donates £900 to QEH

A generous North Lynn grandfather raised £900 during a milestone birthday to benefit cancer patients in West Norfolk.

Duke Johnson was joined by 250 people to celebrate his 75th birthday at The Globe Bowls Club on August 17.

Mr Johnson wanted to give something back to the Hospital’s Cancer Services after his wife Valerie lost her battle eight years ago.

He presented the cheque for the Hospital’s Cancer Care and Treatment fund to Nurse Jayne Johnson.

Mr Johnson, who worked at Cooper Roller Bearings and boxed for Lynn Friars, said: “I would like to thank all the people at The Globe Bowls Club for their support, especially John and Christine Hailstone.

“I am really pleased with the amount of money we have raised, which I know is going to a good cause.”
