Local Boy Has Got Talent for Cancer Appeal

Perry Cooke, age 12 from Thorpe End won the ‘Norwich School Got Talent in 2013’. Since then Perry has sold a music DVD of his performances with all profits going to the Targeted Radiotherapy Appeal at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH).

Perry decided to help the appeal following the death from cancer of his grandfather Kenny Cooke. Many people will remember that his grandfather founded and built the successful Dolphin Autos and Dolphin Travel businesses and was a well-known football supporter.

Perry came into the Colney Centre at the NNUH with his mother Debbie Cooke to present Dr Jenny Nobes, Consultant Oncologist, with an amazing £530.70p raised as a result of selling his DVD.

Debbie Cooke, Perry’s mother said: ‘We are so proud of Perry and with the amount he has raised to support such a wonderful cause. We really want the hospital charity to reach its target for the appeal.’

Fundraising manager at the NNUH, Louise Cooke said: ‘We are so grateful that Perry and his family are supporting our Targeted Radiotherapy Appeal and is lovely to see that whatever age you are and whatever talent you have, you can do something to make a difference for local cancer patients.’

Copies of Perry’s DVD are available from the Colney Centre reception at the NNUH for a £5 donation.
