Memory boxes presented to QEH to honour Jane Barrass

Family and friends have raised hundreds of pounds in memory of a King’s Lynn woman who was a part of The Queen Elizabeth Hospital for 34 years.

Jane Barrass, who passed away in August last year aged 55, was a supervisor in the Domestic Services Department.

Up to 60 people went along to a bingo which was organised in the St Raphael Club in Gaywood in memory of Jane.

The event, which also included a raffle and auction, raised £850 which has been used to purchase memory boxes for youngsters who have lost parents.

Jane’s relatives Kelly Waterfield, Aimee Woolnough and Caitlin Waterfield have presented the boxes to End of Life Care Facilitator Heike Schaefer.

Kelly said: “Jane loved children and we felt that these boxes would be what she wanted the money to be used for.”

Jane’s mum Ivy Foster has thanked Brian and Margaret and friends for supporting the bingo along with the Marie Curie Nurses and the District Nurse Team for caring for Jane.
