Janice Curtis has shown her support for both her sister and the chemotherapy team at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital with a £3,250 donation.

She raised the money with a sponsored head shave. She was inspired to do so by her younger sister Jayne who has lost her hair following extensive chemotherapy treatment.

Janice, from Heacham, originally aimed to raise £1,000, but tripled her original goal in just nine weeks.

She said: “Jayne tells me that the staff and volunteers cannot do enough to care for her and the other patients. It has all been very emotional and we are very grateful for the support. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the team for caring for my sister.”

Emmanvel Rajagembeeram, a staff nurse in the chemotherapy suite, said: “We are very thankful for the donation from Janice. The money will be put to great use within the unit.”
