AUDIENCES will delve into the unknown at two clairvoyant events in aid of The Evening Star's Lifesaver appeal.

A Suffolk medium has volunteered to host the fundraisers to boost our bid to raise £22,000 for a cardiac ultrasound machine for Ipswich Hospital's accident and emergency department.

Sue Knock will be at Hintlesham Community Centre and the Swallow Belstead Brook Hotel in Ipswich to give demonstrations talking about mediumship.

She said: “I will talk about what is involved in being a natural and how it works.

“It's a subject people are interested in, and I have already had lots of interest in the events.”

Tickets are £6.50 and are now on sale from Ms Knock, of Portman Road, on 01473 212812.

The Hintlesham event is on Thursday, April 9, from 8pm. The Ipswich event is on Tuesday, June 5, also at 8pm.

Lifesaver has been running since November. The ultrasound machine will help doctors diagnose acute cardiac conditions, including heart failure, and is expected to help around 1,000 people every year.

The hospital currently relies on older technology such as x-rays. It has other ultrasound machines in the radiology department but often A&E patients need a scan immediately and the new machine will be on hand 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

The state-of-the-art machine can also do other ultrasound scans besides those for the heart.

To support Lifesaver, send a cheque made out to Lifesaver: Evening Star Appeal, to 30 Lower Brook Street, Ipswich, Suffolk, IP4 1AN. You can also donate online.
