Kind-hearted couple, Kim and Paul Mankel wanted to make a difference to the Oncology Unit at Castle Hill Hospital’s Queen’s Centre after the bride underwent treatment for thyroid cancer.
The groom’s mum was also looked after by a team of dedicated doctors and nurses at the centre. Also varying friends and family have needed the unit’s assistance.
There they celebrated on a day that also marked Kim’s mum’s 90th birthday who cut the cake with the newly-weds.
Paul’s son Lee and family organised an auction, with various items. These included restaurant vouchers, beauty care, Hull FC passes, gym memberships. Also, there was a ride on a Harley Davidson to the Goodmanham Arms.
As part of the two-day celebration, entertainment included a Jazz band, magician and raffle.
Sister Deborah Simpson said;
“On behalf of the Queen’s Centre Day Unit, I would like to thank Kim and Paul for their fantastic support.”
“The generosity of their wedding guests has enabled us to buy three sets of specialist weighing scales. These produce a printout for patients’ medical records, enabling nurses to prepare medication.”
“The scales have also helped reduce a patient’s waiting time.”
“We had such a magical weekend with the help of all our family and friends. We were absolutely overwhelmed by everyone’s generosity to support the Oncology unit. Thank you so much.”
