SHOPPERS at Sainsbury’s Billet Street store in Taunton donated £351 to a collection for the Somerset Unit for Radiotherapy Equipment (SURE) appeal to equip the Beacon Centre cancer unit at Musgrove Park Hospital.

Other donations to the County Gazette-backed SURE campaign included: £209.34 from Jenny and Hope Dinsdale and June Best, who raised money by knitting Christmas stockings and selling them at the Beacon Centre; £75 from Taunton Motor Cycle Club; and £30 from Mr and Mrs Cameron.

Collections of 5p coins totalled £162.85 at the Beacon Centre, £25 from Taunton Bowling Club and £14.55 from Nikki Parkman.

The total raised since the Gazette linked up with SURE now stands at £390,549.
