Hospital staff and patients have continued their Christmas music video tradition with a Mariah Carey tribute for the Cancer and Wellbeing Centre Appeal.

In the four minute video, staff, patients and contractors working on the new centre sing along to the hit All I Want for Christmas is You and make a pledge for donations.

Julie Whitton, senior charity officer for Over and Above, said: "Our appeal has done really well and we've raised £1.1 million of the £1.5 million needed for the Cancer and Wellbeing Centre. We still need £400,000 to finish it.

"All we want for Christmas is a Cancer and Wellbeing Centre! Can you help us reach our target and give North Devon its best ever Christmas present?"

The centre will support cancer patients, people with long-term conditions and their families through every stage of their journey, from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond.

It will be a first for North Devon, with the next nearest centre in Exeter.

Mark Gill is one of the patients who starred in the video. Mark has recently been given a provisional all clear after treatment for throat cancer and wanted to take part in the video to support the appeal.

He said: "You can't understand just how much cancer impacts your life and your family's lives until you've experienced it. I can tell you that just having somewhere to go after receiving that devastating news would have made a big difference to us.

"I've recently been given some good news, which is fantastic, but cancer is such a life-changing thing that I know I'm only just getting back on my feet. My family and I will really benefit from having local support available to us in future.

"I'm glad to have been a part of the video to support the Centre and would encourage everyone to get behind it and donate."
