Martin cooks up a fundraiser for haematology

A patient who suffers from a rare form of anaemia is organising a cookery evening in Denton near Harleston to raise funds for the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH).

Martin Symons who has rare condition called Klippel-Feil Syndrome, makes regular visits to NNUH for life-saving blood transfusions. He said: “I'm raising the money for the haematology unit at the NNUH because they have been fantastic in providing me with the service that I need to keep me fit and healthy which enables me to continue to do the things I enjoy doing.”

The fundraising evening is designed for all those who like or wish to learn how to cook. It will take place at Denton Village Hall in Harleston on Thursday 20 May at 7.15pm. Tickets cost £2.50 and include a complimentary glass of wine are available from Martin Symons either by emailing or calling 01508 494205.
