Hunstanton Woman’s 90th Birthday Afternoon Tea raises hundreds for Breast Clinic at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn

A Hunstanton woman who beat breast cancer has given back to the clinic that treated her.

Valerie Jubb celebrated her 90th birthday on October 29 and, in lieu of gifts, she asked loved ones to donate to the West Norfolk Breast Care Unit at Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Valerie and two of her friends, Marie Jarvis and Joy Kelly, have all been treated by the breast cancer clinic.

They hosted an afternoon tea party at the Briarfields Hotel in Titchwell for 50 ladies, raising a total of £700.

Yesterday, Valérie presented the check to the staff of the breast care unit.

She said: “I’m completely overwhelmed, it’s so much money.”
