Entertainment show donates money to TRA Appeal

Sheringham-based entertainer, Terry Chappelle has raised £1,165 for the Norfolk & Waveney Prostate Cancer Support Group.

This donation will be added, by the cancer patients’ support group, to the £10,000 they have already pledged to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital's Targeted Radiotherapy Appeal, to provide a specialist brachytherapy unit for the treatment of prostate and other cancers.

At the moment patients have to travel to Cambridge, or London, to receive this treatment. The 'Deja Revue' show, which played to a full house at the St. Andrew's Church Hall, Sheringham, starred soon-to-be octogenarian, Terry Chappelle.

A prostate cancer patient himself, Terry enthralled his audience with his tribute-impersonations to female entertainers of yesteryear, including Edith Piaf and Marlene Dietrich.

The energetic, veteran performer was ably supported, between his eight costume changes, by fellow artistes and musicians.

Notes to editors

The Targeted Radiotherapy Appeal aims to raise £600,000 to provide state-of-the-art facilities at the Norfolk and Norfwich University Hospital for people undergoing internal radiotherapy, known as brachytherapy which is used to treat prostate and other cancers, reducing treatment times and meaning some patients can be treated closer to home.
