Caring Lynn News staff raise money for the QEH
Advertising staff at the Lynn News have handed over a cheque for £2,119 to the paediatrics A&E department at Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital to pay for the installation of sensory equipment aimed at calming youngsters coming into the unit.
Junior Sister Laura Shepherd took delivery of the cheque and said it would be used to install the boards and LED lights bought out of funds raised at a Disney-themed ball held at Knights Hill.
Scott Young, commercial manager at the Lynn News, ran a Christmas incentive for his team which if they achieved the targets set would see a donation made to the QEH Children’s ward.
“The team worked extremely hard,” he said.
