A cancer support centre has been given a four-figure boost after picking up an award from a mobile phone company.

The Louise Hamilton Centre, which is based at the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston, has been chosen as one of the recipients of the Vodafone Community Connect Award, after being selected by staff at the Great Yarmouth store.

The centre was presented with a cheque for £1,000, which will help it continue to offer one-to-one sessions for patients and support for their friends and family.

Maxine Taylor, Fundraiser for The Louise Hamilton Centre entered the charity for the award and said: 'This kind donation will allow us to offer additional relaxation sessions for patients, families and carers – which is so beneficial for those who need this service.'

David Clark, Vodafone Great Yarmouth store manager said: 'We could not be prouder to support The Louise Hamilton Centre.'
