A CHARITY dance organised to thank two hospitals which have cared for a cancer patient raised £1,800.

Friends Annette and Steve Watson and Daphne and Dennis Woods, all of Long Sutton, arranged the dance at Sutton St James Village Hall to say thank you for the care Dennis has received while undergoing treatment for multi myeloma.

The money was split with £1,000 going to Ward C10 at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge, where Dennis had a bone marrow transplant, and the remaining £800 benefiting the Macmillan Unit Day Care Ward at King’s Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital, where Dennis is still receiving treatment.

Music on the night was provided by local band No Danger, along with a disco.

The couples are now planning a Valentine’s Dance for February 12, with cash raised from this going to the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.

She added: “We have decided to hold another dance but this time money raised will go to the air ambulance because it’s a great charity which receives no government funding.”

The dance will take place at Sutton St James Village Hall with the same entertainment.
