Hospital staff and patients have been enjoying a cake stall set up to raise funds for an epilepsy charity.

Superintendent radiographer at Stamford Hospital, Alison Telfer, decided to take part in Epilepsy Action’s tea break scheme as her eight-year-old son, Jack, suffers from the condition.

With the help of ISS Facilities Services - Catering, which runs the hospital cafe, she has been running a cake stall every day since Monday last week.

The stall, which will be in place for the last time tomorrow (Friday), has proved popular with hospital staff and patients alike.

Alison said: “It has been doing very well.

“It has given me a good excuse to have a cake every day.

“I don’t know how much we have raised but we have sold quite a few wristbands, pens and trolley coins as well.

“I am delighted because all the staff have come down and bought cakes.

“They have all supported me and Jack.”
