A woman who has raised more than £2million for charity has been appointed the first ever ambassador for West Suffolk Hospital.

Gina Long from Fornham St Martin has devoted 25 years raising money for cancer charities on a voluntary basis and is the driving force behind the Sir Bobby Robson on line auction which has raised £706,000 since it launched two years ago.

She will be an ambassador for both West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust and West Suffolk Hospital Charity on a voluntary basis promoting the charity in its support for the Bury St Edmunds hospital.

Trust chief executive Stephen Dunn said: “We are delighted that Gina has agreed to come on board as the hpospital’s and WSH Charity’s first ever ambassador. Her expertise, experience, enthusiasm, contacts and dedication are second to none.”

Gina, a founder member of Suffolk Breakthrough Breast Cancer, said: “The hospital is very dear to me. It has helped my family and friends and I am very passionate about doing all I can to support the hospital and the charity’s important work.”

In 2013 West Suffolk Hospital received £30,000 from the Sir Bobby Robson Auction and it will again be a beneficiary this year.
