The going was good for a Snettisham family who honoured their late wife and mother’s memory by completing a charity walk at Fakenham Racecourse.

Relatives and friends of Doreen Grange completed five circuits of the track in aid of Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

The family raised a total of £1,258, which has now been presented to Sister Jane Miller.

Mrs Grange, a former home help care assistant, died from cancer in June last year.

Her husband Ray said: “I think it is a wonderful amount to have raised for the hospital. It shows how well thought of Doreen was in the village.”

Several members of the Grange family, plus friends from the Alan Stockley Pharmacy, in Snettisham, walked the course in December 18, when a race was also named in Doreen’s honour. Her son Andy has thanked Lady Jane Fellowes and the racecourse for their support. He said: “We cannot thank everyone enough for their support. It is heartening to know that nearly every penny was raised by someone who knew or went to school with Mum.” Pictured are: front, from left, Sister Jane Miller, Ray Grange and Andy Grange.
