The P.E.I. Cancer Treatment Centre will accept a cheque for more than $15,000 from CBC News Compass host Bruce Rainnie Friday, the proceeds from a fundraising book project.

Rainnie published his first book, Right Place Right Time, a little over a year ago, a collection of stories from his 25 years of broadcasting. He donated all his author royalties to the P.E.I. Cancer Treatment Centre.

The money will go towards a new piece of equipment for the centre.
