A cancer support centre in the James Paget University Hospital is to reap the benefits of a Beetle drive fundraising event.

Held in April, the event will raise funds for the centre while also providing the opportunity for a fun evening out playing the dice-based drawing game.

Beetle is a party game in which players aim to draw a full picture of a beetle, with each number on a die representing a part of the beetle.

The Beetle drive will see several rounds of the game played throughout the evening, with players also receiving a meal with their entrance fee.

The event will be held on Tuesday, April 25 at the Furzedown Hotel in Great Yarmouth, starting at 7pm. It has been organised by Palliative Care East.

Tickets are £12 per head. To book, call Maxine or Helen on 01493 453348.

Alternatively, email maxine.taylor@jpaget.nhs.uk or helen.rowe@jpaget.nhs,uk
