AN IPSWICH medium is today hoping to use her powers to boost The Evening Star's Lifesaver Appeal - but first she needs a hall.

Sue Knock has volunteered her services for a special medium demonstration evening with all proceeds going to help the Star's appeal to buy a £22,000 ultrasound machine for Ipswich Hospital.

However, Ms Knock first needs the owner of a large hall to lend a hand - or the plans will not get off the ground.

Ms Knock needs someone to give her free use of their hall, plus chairs for the audience.

The natural, of Portman Road, said: “I will do a demonstration talking about mediumship, as events like that are very popular.

“I will talk about how I'm a natural and how it works. It will be entertaining - not morbid.

“People will go knowing the money is going to charity and it's for a cause which could help any one of us any day.”

Ms Knock is also asking businesses to donate raffle prizes.

If you can help, call her on 01473 212812.

The state-of-the-art ultrasound machine quickly helps doctors diagnose acute cardiac conditions, including heart failure, and can also do other ultrasound scans besides those for the heart.

Medical experts at the hospital say it is likely to help around 1,000 people in the first year alone. It will be kept in the accident and emergency department.

Currently, the hospital 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.
