Thousands for hospital that saved Lincoln woman's life
A Lincoln businesswoman who fought breast cancer has handed over more than £7,000 to the hospital where she was treated.
The cheque was presented to staff including Alaa Abdel-Rahman, consultant breast surgeon at the Boston Breast Unit at Pilgrim Hospital.
The presentation was made by Christine Hiew, who was treated at the unit, and her brother Steven Li.
They run the Harbour City restaurant on The Landings at Burton Waters, where they held a special fundraising evening with a five-course meal, raffle and auction at the restaurant.

Cash was also raised from sponsored walks and a stall at Spilsby Show.
The money will be used to buy a lipo modelling machine which will enable the team to take natural fat from a patient's stomach or thigh and use it to reconstruct their breast.
Cheryl Drayton from the Boston breast unit said: "The fundraising event was a huge success and staff, as well as Christine and Steven, are extremely grateful to everyone who supported the event.
"The money raised will allow us to purchase this new equipment, which will make a tremendous difference to patients who require breast reconstruction following surgery."
