LETTER: Boost for the surgical robot

The Friends of Eastbourne Hospital wish to thank all those who helped with this year’s Grand Draw, which resulted in almost £4,000 in ticket sales.

After expenses, the profit from this event will go towards the charity’s special project for 2015, to raise £1 million for the Da Vinci Surgical Robot, which is already in use and revolutionising prostate cancer surgery for patients at the DGH.

Thanks are due to the generous local businesses who donated such wonderful prizes, to our marvellous volunteers who sold tickets over seven-weeks and to our members who continue to support us.
