Maria Noblet, consultant nurse at the breast services department, said: ‘This very kind donation will go a long way towards providing support to our Health and Wellbeing events, held three times a year at QA.

‘These events bring together many experts in the field of breast cancer who then educate and inform women in the post-treatment phase of their illness.

‘We’re very grateful to have been chosen to receive this cheque. It will certainly be put to good use.”
