A summer party has raised more than £1,000 for Weston General Hospital's scanner appeal.

The games, craft stalls and barbecue at Knightstone House, in Bristol Road Lower, raised £1,770 for the hospital’s League of Friends appeal.

The aim is to buy a £400,000 scanner which will form part of a walk-in service at the hospital in Grange Road.

Darrell Jackson, strategic business manager at Knightstone Housing, which runs Knightstone House, said: “We’re proud to support the campaign and raising funds for new

digital scanning equipment allowing conditions to be diagnosed more quickly and by cutting waiting times.

“The new equipment will provide real benefits to the people of Weston and the surrounding areas.”

The hospital carries out 70,000 scans every year.

To support the appeal, text SCAN16 and the amount to donate to 70070.
