A woman from Dereham has handed over a cheque to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital after raising hundreds of pounds on her birthday.
Sheila Brunton celebrated her 80th birthday by holding a party in aid of the hospital and managed to raise £655.
The money has been handed to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and will be spent on improving the environment and equipment for cancer patients.
It is the latest of many donations made by Mrs Brunton after years of fundraising, which has seen her raise thousands of pounds for the hospital.
Fundraising manager, Louise Cook, said: “We are hugely grateful to Sheila, husband Terry, and all her family and friends who have played their part over the years, raising thousands of pounds for our hospital charity.
“It was lovely that she held her 80th birthday party in support of us.”
