A jewellery maker has raised nearly £100 by selling bracelets to honour her friend who lost her battle to cancer.

Jane Bowman, of Flitcham, is making bracelets in memory of Rosie Amos, who died last year aged 43.

The money will go to the Red Wellies charity, raising money for the Lisa Wiles Brain Tumour Support Fund.

Jane’s bracelets, which are adorned with the Red Wellies logo, have so far raised £98 and more is expected.

She will be manning a stall in the Sainsbury’s Hardwick store throughout today.

Red Wellies treasurer Mervyn Wiles said: “These are really nice and are popular with youngsters. It’s nice to be raising money with handmade jewellery.”

The charity, which was set up in the days after Lisa’s death in October 2011 to raise awareness of brain tumours and money for research, has been boosted by a series of donations.

The Martin Folkes Masonic Lodge in Hunstanton has given £200 while Keith Upjohn has donated £417.50.

Mars Foods has donated £190 while £100 has also been received from Kevin and Christine Wilson of East Winch. It also received a total of £96.23 thanks to collections and donations from the Highways Garden Centre, near Norwich.

The Maipop Farm Shop at Walsoken has also raised £16.20 from a bucket collection.
