Caley Hall Hotel in Old Hunstanton has launched a major fundraising campaign for Macmillan Cancer Care in Norfolk.

Staff hope to raise £5,000 for the charity in the next 12 months and have been busy planning a host of events, including a quiz night and winter ball.

The team hopes an indulgence pamper evening in May will match the success of a coffee morning and bake-off held at the hotel in February.

Organiser Danielle Johnson said Macmillan was a fantastic charity and all the money raised would be used to help people living in the county.

Georgina Daniels, regional fundraising manager for Norfolk Macmillan, said she was delighted by the hotel’s decision to support the charity.

“The resources that go into funding Macmillan projects are substantial and it really is impossible for us to support those affected by cancer without support from local businesses,” she added.

“Our research indicates the amount of people living with cancer will double over the next 20 years, and this will make supporting those affected by cancer an even taller order.

“We’re just delighted that the hotel has got on board and look forward to a fruitful relationship over the coming year.

“Quite simply, what the Caley Hall Hotel is doing will have a profound impact of those affected by cancer in Norfolk.”

The ‘Macmillan Really Good Night In’ pamper event  is being held at the hotel, in Old Hunstanton Road, from 4pm to 8pm on Sunday, May 18.

There will be discounted treatments, including Indian head massages and spray tans, a raffle with prizes, plus cakes and a Tarot card reader.
