Going Hula for Cancer

Nanna Lay, President of East Point Rotary Club, is playing with fire to raise money for a local hospital charity.

Nanna Lay plans to hula hoop with fire on 17 June to raise money for the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital’s Targeted Radiotherapy Appeal after seeing four friends go through treatment for cancer. Five rods of fire will be attached to Mrs Lay’s hula hoop, which she will demonstrate using her waist, arms and head.

Her challenge will continue the following day with a 16- hour ‘hula-hoopathon’ which is open to everyone and does not include any fire element. It begins when the sun rises at 4.29am at Ness Point in Lowestoft and will continue until it sets at 9.19pm.

Louise Cook, Fundraising Manager, said: “Nanna is amazing – her enthusiasm and sense of fun is very contagious and what a brilliant and unusual way to fundraise for our appeal. Rotaries across the East of England have been so supportive in fundraising for the Targeted Radiotherapy Appeal and we are incredibly grateful.”

The fire hula hooping event will take place at the Hotel Victoria in Lowestoft on Tuesday, 17 June, as part of a Rotary meeting. To sponsor Mrs Lay visit https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/nannalay3 or to take part in the standard hula-hoop part of the event call Peggy McGregor on 01502 713707.
