Donation in memory of Jamie

Family and friends have honoured the memory of a young mother by raising a further £900 for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Jamie King was just 34 years-old when she lost her battle to stomach cancer in 2003 and had been treated at the hospital.

Her mother, Beverley Boon, and friend Josie High hold a bingo and raffle each year in Jamie’s memory and raise thousands of pounds for the QEH.

The latest bingo, was held in Pott Row Village Hall on August 23, was once again a big success and raised £900.

Mrs Boon, of Roydon, said: “We organise the bingo in memory of Jamie and we hope it will make the lives of other cancer patients better. I would like to thank Josie and her family for their hardwork in running this event.

Mrs High, who lives in Grimston, said: “We really enjoy holding the bingos and hope it makes a difference.”

They presented the latest cheque to Vicky Mitchell, the hospital’s Macmillan Support and Information Officer, and Research Nurse Hayley Webb.
