A best-selling author donated books to help Weston-super-Mare’s scanner appeal.
Weston General Hospital’s League of Friends group is hoping to raise £400,000 for a new digital scanner.
Author Amanda Prowse, whose book Perfect Daughter is set in Weston, signed copies of her novel to raise money.
She also gave away signed copies to hospital staff.
She said: “Weston General Hospital features in my novel Poppy Day so I’m delighted to be supporting their scanner appeal by donating copies of my book, to help raise funds.
“It’s a great cause – new X-ray equipment that will make a huge difference to the health of people in our local community.”
Copies of Perfect Daughter can be bought in the League of Friends shop at the hospital, with all proceeds going to the appeal.
The hospital’s chief executive James Rimmer said: “Her backing is truly valued, as is her kind donation of copies of her recent book – the proceeds of which will help us get even closer to our £400,000 appeal target.”
