Prostate cancer patients to benefit from an Imperial Gift

The Imperial Hotel, Great Yarmouth, has contributed £3,200 for the benefit of local patients with prostate cancer. The hotel owner, Nick Mobbs and his wife Aileen have been running the Imperial for three generations, and at a recent dinner to celebrate 80 years of continuous trading they raised trading they donated £3,200 to the Norfolk and Waveney Prostate Cancer Support Group which in turn provided £2,500 for the Targeted Radiotherapy Appeal.

A cheque was presented to Noel Warner, chairman of the Norfolk and Waveney Prostate Cancer Support Group. Mr Warner said: “This generous donation will fund a further supply of lifestyle and cookery books written especially for prostate cancer patients in addition to supporting the Targeted Radiotherapy Appeal”.

The Targeted Radiotherapy Appeal will deliver a new treatment for patients with prostate cancer, using a form of radiotherapy called brachytherapy. Louise Cook, Fundraising Manager for Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said, “We are incredibly grateful to the Mobbs family for their support and the continued support of the Norfolk and Waveney Prostate Cancer Support Group to our Targeted Radiotherapy Appeal. The appeal will help local cancer patients with reduced treatment times and avoiding travelling to London and Cambridge.”
