The money was raised at a charity day organised by the traders and held at Beverley Saturday Market on Saturday 5 May.
There was a children’s treasure hunt, cycle challenge, and a grand raffle and tombola with prizes donated by businesses from Beverley and the surrounding area.
Professor Nick Stafford, chair of the Daisy Appeal, said:
“The support we have received from the Beverley Market traders has been fantastic.
“Thanks must go to Richard Lascelles and his team at East Riding of Yorkshire Council and a special thank you to stallholder Lisa Gray, from the Little Cheese Pantry, who worked tirelessly collecting raffle and tombola prizes and selling tickets.
“The total amount of £2,172.81 is magnificent and will certainly go towards helping the Daisy Appeal charity to fund a new £7.2million Cyclotron and Radiopharmacy Unit at Castle Hill Hospital in Cottingham, which will be used to help medics in the earlier detection of cancer, heart disease and dementia.”
