Lynne Springford has inspired �2,071 of donations

Cash donated in memory of a popular mother will help maintain a hospital facility that was a lifeline to her family in the final stages of her cancer battle.

Lynne Springford, 48, of Docking, lost a five-year fight with the disease at the end of last year.

More than 400 people attended her funeral and £2,071 was donated in her memory to Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital Log Cabin Fund.

The fund helps maintain the cabin where families can stay to be close to their loved ones while they have cancer treatment.

Lynne’s parents Kathy and Rod Forster, of Snettisham, husband Craig, daughters Zara, aged 20, and Jodie, aged 15, brother Mark Forster, 51, and best friend Michelle Taylor all stayed there.

Mrs Forster, of Snettisham, said: “The cabin was a godsend for us.”

She and Mr Forster sent thanks to everyone who donated and who supported Lynne, a former worker at Sussex Barns, Burnham Market and The Duck, Stanhoe, and her family when she was ill.

Mrs Forster said: “Lynne was very, very popular and had a lot of friends.

“They would go in to help with cooking, cleaning and just to lay with her so that she wasn’t alone. “

Snettisham’s Talk Torc quilting group has also made a large quilt of 108 squares in Lynne’s memory which it plans to donate to add a homely touch to the log cabin.
