Green and yellow was definitely the colour of the day on Friday when West Norfolk did its bit to help the Wheel Appeal.

Everyone was encouraged to wear green, yellow or both to match the appeal logo and help boost the fundraising.

Staff at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital were able to wear specially-made stickers for the day, if they paid £1.

The money is still being counted, but staff at The Sandboy, Bawsey, donated their tips for the day; the teams at Paradise Garage, Baco Compak and Charmed Interiors also did their bit while Your Local Paper staff also raised money for the appeal.

So far our readers have raised almost £17,000 to buy new 22 wheelchairs for the hospital. The appeal aims to raise enough for 30 new chairs.

Let us know if you are helping out

You can help the Wheel Appeal in a variety of ways.

Raffles, cake-bakes and sponsored fitness sessions have already been held. But don’t let that deter you as  there is no such thing as too many fundraising events!

We are happy to publicise anything you are doing to help raise money for the Wheel Appeal and will take photos of your event whenever we can.

You can also send cheques made payable to Wheelchairs. Post them to Laurence Morlaas, fundraising executive, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gayton Road, King’s Lynn PE30 4ET.
