A CANCER charity has struck it lucky with a generous donation from a Portsmouth casino.

Staff at the Grosvenor Casino in Gunwharf Quays handed over £5,387 to Marie Curie Cancer Care.

They raised the money through quizzes, raffles and a range of sponsored activities such as beard growing.

General manager Paul Brady said having lost his father to cancer a couple of years ago he knew how valuable charities like Marie Curie could be.

‘The care they provide is a great help,’ he said.

‘I want to say a big thank you to all our customers and staff for helping us reach such a fantastic total.’
