A Norfolk couple celebrated their golden wedding anniversary this month.
But instead of receiving presents in celebration, they asked for all the money raised to go a department in the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
Maureen and Tony Lubbock, from Cawston, celebrated their 50 years together by giving the Targeted Radiotherapy Appeal at the hospital £376.
Mr Lubbock, 74, was diagnosed in 2010 with prostate cancer and had 37 radiotherapy treatments at the NNUH.
Now that he’s back to health, the couple decided to give something back and help future patients to benefit from targeted radiotherapy, especially as this would mean future prostate cancer patients wouldn’t have to receive as many courses of radiotherapy treatments as Mr Lubbock did.
Jenny Tomes, head of radiotherapy at the NNUH said: “We are really grateful to Mr and Mrs Lubbock for making this donation to our appeal; every little helps in us being able to bring this treatment closer to home.”
