THE appeal by Bungay Rotary Club president Terry Reeve for the Sandra Chapman Unit at the James Paget Hospital at Gorleston has been boosted by a donation of £220.

The money is from a collection made at the funeral service for Nellie Daniels. She was treated at the unit for cancer, and her son, Mike Daniels, a past Rotary president, his father, John and wife Jenny, decided the money should be added to the appeal, which Mr Reeve has chosen in memory of another former Bungay Rotary president, Tony Clarke, who received treatment at the unit before his death just over a year ago.

John Daniels is currently receiving treatment at the Sandra Chapman centre, and his son said: “It is helping father in many ways to help him with his cancer problems. I wanted to just say a big thank you to the people know who gave so well, and let them known how the money will find its way to Sandra Chapman.”

The donations were collected through Liz Chapman at Rosedale Funeral Home at Bungay.

And the family said they were grateful to everyone who gave so generously in memory of Nellie. The money will go to help the dedicated caring work done at the Sandra Chapman Cancer Unit.

Mr Reeve said he was organising a charity concert at the Fisher Theatre on Friday, February 27, as the major event for his appeal. It would feature mainly classical music from an internationally known concert pianist, a profession clarinet duet, and traditional folk songs from a folk group, as well as featuring operatic soprano Lucy Harvey.

Tickets are £10, available through the theatre box office on 01986 897130, or from Terry Reeve on 01986 896416.
