In Christmas Eve's Gazette: My Christmas Gift Is Giving Life
8:42am Monday 24th December 2012 in News
GRAN Sue Dawson has given the ultimate present - the gift of life.
Sue, 62, of Brinkley Crescent, Colchester, decided she wanted to help give someone the chance of a normal life.
She spent four hours having her left kidney removed and it was whisked to an anonymous recipient who had a successful operation.
Read the full heartwarming story in today's Gazette. Also in today's newspaper:
- A crook who stole from a cancer ward, school and supermarket staff room has been jailed.
- Failure to hit response targets has led to the East of England Ambulance Service being denied foundation trust status.
- A woman convicted of killing a colleague in a car crash says she wishes every day she could swap places with him.
All this and much more in your Gazette. Remember - there's always much more in the newspaper than online.
