On behalf of the staff on the oncology ward, Royal Sussex County Hospital, I would like to thank the local businesses which donated to our Christmas raffle, the proceeds of which will help to improve our services.

These not only included large stores, such as Marks & Spencer and Habitat, but also smaller businesses, such as Capers cafe and Barbercan hairdressing.

It is good to know companies remain dedicated to community support and this is much appreciated by staff and patients.

-Matthew Seal, staff nurse, Howard One ward, Royal Sussex County Hospital
