A well-known Lynn fundraiser has completed her latest fundraising effort.

Bridget Wells took to the roads to complete a 30-mile cycling challenge in support of the Independence Matters Crossroads Community Hub in South Wootton and the William Day Centre in Tilney St Lawrence.

Mrs Wells, 60, presented a cheque for £5,000 – taking her overall fundraising total to more than £50,000 since she began back in 1998.

She hopes her latest venture, which also saw a bingo, raffle and car boot sale, will help to improve facilities at both sites for older people, including those living with dementia.

Mrs Wells thanked supporters who pledged sponsorship or bingo and raffle prizes, including books and jigsaws.

She also thanked Sharon Smith at the Royal British Legion Club for allowing her to host the bingo and raffle there, as well as Peter Kerrison, Phillip Cullen, Doreen Hattiga, Kay Waring and her husband Clive Wells.
