Staff and residents of a retirement housing estate in Lowestoft have come together and helped to raise £50,000 to support those battling cancer.

Hanover Housing Association held events at its facilities across the nation to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

And its Lowestoft base in Hanover Close was among the leading fundraisers for the charity.

Hanover chairman Dr Stuart Burgess said: “This is really is a tremendous fundraising effort to help support the many friends, colleagues and loved ones who have faced cancer.

“I am particularly impressed by the enthusiasm of our residents, many of whom are retirees and pensioners.”

Leena Sirpal, senior fundraising manager at Macmillan, said: “We are extremely grateful for the fundraising efforts from the Hanover communities across the country.

“They have raised an incredible amount of money over the last year which will benefit many people living with cancer.”
