Seven Lions Clubs in Norfolk have raised thousands of pounds to pay for cancer treatment equipment at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
The Lions Clubs of King's Lynn, Hunstanton, Wells, Swaffham and Downham Market - and Lionesses of the latter two - have raised £16,115 for the cancer unit in the King's Lynn hospital.
The total is entirely made up of public donations, made at the clubs' fund raising events which began in September last year.
Zone chairman Paul Southerton said the idea to raise money for the cancer unit came from a relative, who had mentioned patients were waiting a long time to receive treatment.
He added: 'This was taken on as a project for the seven clubs. We held coffee mornings, quizzes and spring fairs and the target was to raise as much as we could.
