Dedicated fundraiser Beverley Boon has handed over a cheque to the cancer care unit at Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital in memory of her daughter, Jamie, who died 11 years ago.

Mrs Boon, of Roydon, and her late husband Jim, who died in August, had raised funds every year since Jamie died, aged just 34, and given the money to the Macmillan Cancer Care and Treatment Fund.

This year, a raffle and bingo was held at Pott Row Village Hall, and Mrs Boon presented a cheque for £765 to the hospital unit on Friday.

Mrs Boon said: “Jamie held the first fundraiser when she knew she had cancer and my husband and I carried on doing it ever since. It’s only been possible with the support of lots of friends and villagers.”

The most raised by the event was £1,600 and all the money is used for updating and improving the quality of chemotherapy delivered at the QEH, where Jamie received treatment.
