An appeal to improve cancer treatment facilities at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital has received a further boost following a £20,000 cheque presentation from a charity shop.
The Targeted Radiotherapy Appeal (TRA) was launched almost two years ago to raise £600,000 to provide more state-of-the-art facilities to treat more cancer patients from Norfolk and north Suffolk locally.
Volunteers from the Brundall Cancer Community Chest handed over £20,000 to Broadland MP Keith Simpson, which will be looked after by the Norfolk and Waveney Prostate Cancer Support Group.

The charity shop has already donated £10,000 to the cause to provide a new radiotherapy service for patients, known as high dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy and the prostate cancer support group has pledged another £10,000.
The appeal is now nearing the £500,000 mark so that the N&N can become one of just a handful of hospitals in the country offering HDR prostate brachytherapy.

Adrianne Capp, chairman of the shop committee, said: 'The shop is the very heart of the community. People come in to donate items, buy items, or to simply have a chat. Maybe other villages would like to think about copying our model.'
