The Manx Breast Cancer Support Group’s appeal to build a dedicated breast unit on the island reached a major milestone on Tuesday as Lieutenant Governor Adam Wood unveiled the architect’s plans and the ‘Millie Meter’ which will stand in the hospital’s atrium, tracking the progress of the fundraising.

The target on the ‘Millie Meter’, named after consultant breast surgeon Millie Bello, is £1.5 million, of which £300,000 has been raised so far.

Performing the unveiling the Lieutenant Governor said: ‘ I am impressed by the ambition of the plans tonight and by the partnership between government and the third sector that will greatly enhance those whose lives are affected by breast cancer.’
