Patchwork quilt raises almost £900

Almost £900 has been raised to help cancer patients at Nottingham’s hospitals, through the raffle of a beautiful patchwork quilt.

The handmade quilt was created and donated to Nottingham Hospitals Charity by craftswoman Sue Godney, to say thank you for the treatment given to her husband Robert. The money raised will go to the Oncology Department at the City Hospital, where Robert has been treated for a tumour on his pancreas, liver and spleen.

Sue said: “I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who bought a ticket and to the sponsors. Thanks to them we have been able to raise this money for a very worthy cause that affects so many people.”

Raffle tickets were sold throughout the autumn and winter, and the project also received sponsorship from local businesses, raising a total of £877. The raffle was drawn at Christmas and the quilt was won by Pauline Bradshaw (pictured).

Pauline, who also does quilting, said: “I bought five raffle tickets as I wanted to support the hospital charity, and I’ve given the quilt I won to my granddaughter. I now hope to make a wall hanging for the charity for Christmas, so that I can donate something back.”

After her fundraising success, Sue also plans to make another quilt in aid of Nottingham Hospitals Charity later in the year. Thank you to Sue for her support!
