Ladies night at Carlton pub to raise cash for cancer ward revamp


A Carlton pub is holding a ladies night to help raise funds to rejuvenate a city cancer hospital ward.

The Elwes Arms in Oakdale Road is holding the night to raise the cash to buy new furniture and improve facilities at the Frazer Ward at Nottingham City Hospital.

The ward looks after terminally-ill women suffering from cancer.

The funds will go towards improving facilities to support families visiting patients at the ward.

Tickets for the event cost £10 and can be bought from the pub.

Elwes Arms landlady Beccy Webster said: “The ward doesn’t have the facilities to support the families with kitchen equipment or anything for them to do together like watch DVDs, play games or have books to read. We want to get things that can make the ward more bearable. They also need to raise money for chairs and bed for patients families to sleep on

She added: “Due to NHS restrictions, all these items have to be purchased from certain companies to comply with their health and safety standards and with this comes at a costly price.”
