TV STAR Carol Vorderman has unveiled a charity plaque at Mezze Restaurants in support of the chain's new fundraising commitment helping to raise £2 Million for the Linac Radiotherapy Appeal.

Mezze Restaurants has nominated The Friends of Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre's £2 Million Linac Radiotherapy Appeal as its chosen charity for the next year.

To officially mark their dedication to fundraising Ms Vorderman joined her manager John Miles, chairman of the Friends of BHOC, at Mezze at The White Lion in Portishead.

During the visit Carol unveiled a commemorative plaque alongside Mr Miles to encourage people to support Mezze in their fundraising efforts.

Mezze Directors Alex Tryfonos and James Brown said with the number of cancer patients increasing year on year in the UK, it is vital to invest in new technology.

Alex said: "One in three of us will get cancer and for most it will be the toughest thing we ever face.  With these figures increasing year on year it is vital that we target cancer with world-class technology.

"The Linac machine will equip the Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre with the very latest tool to target tumours with millimetre accuracy.

"Mezze Restaurants is therefore delighted to announce that going forward we will be supporting the appeal as its chosen charity."

The new Linac machine boasts the latest technological advances to treat virtually every shape and size of tumour using thousands of separate radiation beams.

In buying a Linac, The Friends will keep Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre at the leading edge of world-class radiotherapy.

Mezze Restaurants plans to install collection points inside some of its venues and hold various fundraising events throughout the year.

These may include regular cookery demonstrations and cocktail master classes of which a percentage will go directly to the appeal.

Mr Miles said: "I am so grateful that Mezze have offered to help us in our efforts to raise the £2 million to purchase this new vitally important Linac radiotherapy machine which will mean in Bristol cancer patients can be treated with the latest technology giving them a better chance of recovery."
