A West Norfolk mother who lost her daughter to cancer 25 years ago has continued her tireless fundraising campaign with a donation to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. 

Rosemary Durrant, of Wimbotsham, raised £300 for the King’s Lynn hospital’s Macmillan Cancer Care and Treatment Centre with a tombola and cake stall in her garden.

Her daughter, Michelle Sherwood, was a nurse at the QEH before she died of cancer aged 25 in 1992. Mrs Durrant has supported the Macmillan unit in Michelle’s memory since her death.

“We have a received some very generous donations from the community and it is amazing to see the unit,” she said.

“I would just like to thank everyone for the help in organising the event as well as coming along, in particular my daughters Anne and Victoria along with my grandson Liam.”

Dawn Slack, lead cancer nurse at the hospital, said: “We are really grateful for the donations over the years from Rosemary.

“We hope to put this money towards some new pictures around the unit for the patients.”
