A member of staff from Weston General Hospital has raised thousands of pounds for a cancer charity by selling cakes and pink ribbons.
Pauline White, from Weston, was diagnosed with breast cancer last year and underwent surgery and radiotherapy.
She is now in remission, but wanted to raise money to support other women going through the same experiences.
Pauline, who works as a site manager at the hospital, knitted pink ribbons for Wear It Pink day.
She and her colleagues also baked cakes and held a raffle at the hospital, raising more than £2,555 for Breast Cancer Now.
