A TOTAL of £900 has been raised for Kidderminster Hospitals League of Friends’ Scanner Appeal by residents at Arch Hill Court, through activities such as tai chi demonstrations, massages , hypnotherapy and raffles .

Bewdley pensioner Dorothy Lowe organised the events .

She had to travel more than two hours from Worcester to Redditch for a scan after suffering a stroke last year, as the Worcester machine was out of action, prompting her to get behind the Shuttle-backed cause .

The £125,000 appeal has already flown past the halfway mark.

People can make a donation to the Scanner Appeal by calling the League of Friends on 01562 67653.
