Pink Priscilla Day took place on Friday, June 19, when fundraisers were organised to support the Priscilla Bacon Hospice Appeal.

The fund, which will pay for the construction of a new £12.5 million hospice adjacent to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and is backed by this newspaper, officially reached its halfway point in April.

Priscilla Bacon Hospice chief executive Mark Nicholas said: “We’ve been thrilled that so many people and businesses across the county have chosen to mark Pink Priscilla Day and show their support for the appeal.

“Every penny raised gets us closer to the goal of building a new and much needed hospice for Norfolk and Waveney.”
