Former Pentney man leaves £1m to Cromer Hospital
The generosity of a former Pentney farmer is set to improve health services in Norfolk after Cromer Hospital received one of its biggest ever donations.
The family of Douglas de Bootman have presented a cheque of more than £1m to the N&N Hospitals Charity after the retired farmer left the proceeds of his estate to the hospital in his will.
Mr de Bootman spent his life farming at Pentney, before retiring and buying Church Farm in Thursford with his wife Janet.
