Teenager gives something back to children’s ward

A Downham Market teenager and her friends have raised more than £1,000 to help young patients at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Chloe Hobday wanted to give something back to the team on Rudham Ward for the care she received as a child when she suffered a heart problem.

She organised a charity auction in April and a Family Fun Day at the Eternity Downham Market Hall during July.

Chloe said: “I was quite ill as a child and I wanted to give something back to a local children’s ward.

“I am really proud to have raised so much money.”

Chloe, joined by friends Bethan Trott, Leah Barber and Tilly Jones, presented a cheque for £1,100 to Sister Mandy McMurray and patient Bethan Dobson.

Mandy said: “On behalf of all the children and staff, I would like to thank Chloe for raising a fantastic amount of money.”
