A local pub is offering cancer specialist nurses a free roast dinner every Sunday throughout May to thank them for their hard work.

The Kings Head Hotel on Station Road, Hoveton, which is owned by Greene King, is inviting all Macmillan nurses to tuck into the offer as part of the pub's Macmillan May fundraising drive.

May also marks International Nurses Day on Thursday, May 12, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth, so is a special month for nurses around the world.

To claim the meal, Macmillan nurses and professionals simply need to present Macmillan identification when placing an order.

Bradley Torlage, general manager at Kings Head Hotel, said: 'Macmillan nurses work tirelessly to support people with cancer, and their care makes such a difference in the local community. May is a key month for nurses, both in the UK and internationally, so we decided to mark our Macmillan May fundraising drive and celebrate their hard work.
