Grand total for Heather's appeal at Downham Market Lions Club’s concert




A club in Downham has raised £1,000 to help resident Heather Bellamy, who has acute myeloid leukaemia, get the treatment she needs.

Downham Lions Club raised the funds at a concert with the Fenland Ukuleles group, Flukes, held at the Conservative Club on Saturday.

A spokesman said the Flukes donated their time and expertise and Mark and Wendy, stewards at the Conservative Club, donated a glass of wine and canapés for those attending the concert.

During the evening, Jack Vickerstaff, 16, presented £200 raised from a charity football match he organised.

Friends and family of Heather, who launched the Hope for Heather appeal, are hoping to raise £250,000 to allow her to travel to America for life-saving treatment.

A coffee morning to raise funds for Heather's appeal will be held at Downham Town Hall on Saturday, March 23 from 9am to 12pm, which will also host a tombola and a bake sale.
