Simply the breast – West Norfolk raises £1,500 for Wear it Pink

Generous patients, staff and shoppers have risen to the challenge of raising hundreds of pounds to support the fight against breast cancer.

Tables were heaving with cake at the West Norfolk Breast Unit as the Queen Elizabeth Hospital once again rallied behind the Wear It Pink campaign to fund vital research.

Brilliant Breast Unit staff also branched out this year to run a second stall after being invited by the team at Tesco in Gaywood.

Kind Tesco staff not only gave prizes to the huge raffle but also donated cakes to the stall.

Sealed bids were accepted for two hats signed by Formula 1 stars Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen, who drive for the Haas team.

Team QEH has raised around £1,500 for the campaign on Friday, 19th October.

Breast Imaging Service Manager Nicola Ward said: “It has been a really busy and positive day, which has been enjoyed by patients and staff.

“A number of patients stopped to have coffee and cake after their appointments and we have had a lot of support from staff across the hospital.

“We would like to thank the Breast Unit staff, our colleagues across the hospital and Tesco for inviting us to run the stand along with their generous support.”
