Time 11:28 am, September 9, 2019

A SUZUKI dealership group is supporting a hospital’s breast cancer appeal with a new Swift SZ3 supermini for a charity raffle.

Desira Suzuki, which has dealerships in Norwich and Lowestoft, is helping the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital’s (NNUH) Boudicca Breast Cancer Appeal. The N&N Hospitals Charity has partnered with five Rotary clubs from Norwich, the Desira Group in association with Suzuki, and East Bilney Coachworks to raffle the Swift.

Organised by the Norwich Rotary clubs, the raffle will run until Friday, December 6. For a donation of £5 towards the appeal, people will receive a ticket, with all donations helping towards the £800,000 target.

Mark Davies, NNUH chief executive, said: ‘Breast cancer affects many families across Norfolk and Waveney and we are determined to provide the very best care we can to our patients.

‘It is gratifying to see the whole community coming together to support us on our mission, and we are especially grateful to the Desira Group and East Bilney Coachworks for donating this amazing prize.’

Louise Cook, NNUH’s head of fundraising, said: ‘We hope that people will be inspired to take part in the draw and help us raise £20,000 towards our Boudicca Breast Cancer Appeal.’

Stuart Stone, Desira Group managing director, said: ‘We are very proud to be supporting the Boudicca Breast Cancer Appeal. This charity works tirelessly for a cause to which everyone can relate. If our help and assistance is able to play just a small part in raising money, then it is well worth it. We wish the appeal success over the next few weeks with its draw.

‘Many of our staff, friends, family and customers will have used the NNUH, and many more have been affected by cancer. We hope that our support for the Boudicca Appeal and the hospital charity will make a difference to local people.

“In choosing the prize, we have picked out a car that we think will have wide appeal and we hope everyone will love this great supermini, which is practical, fun and economical to drive.’

Tickets will be on sale in the hospital, with the winning one drawn on December 6 at the NNUH.
