A city supermarket has made a donation of mugs and crockery to help support those undergoing cancer treatment.

Staff from Pound Lane Sainsbury's donated the assortment of mugs after department manager, Sally Eagle, noticed an appeal for the crockery while visiting the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

On returning to her store she approached other members of staff, who were happy to support the appeal.

The mugs are to be used at the newly-expanded Weybourne Unit, where chemotherapy is given.

They will be used by volunteers who make hot drinks to those attending the unit.

Fundraising manager of the NNUH, Louise Cook, said: 'We are very pleased to have Sainsbury's Pound Lane support us in this way by helping us to make a small difference to our patients on a daily basis.'

A bag of refreshments was included in the donation.
