IN MEMORY: Vera Jackson and Aaron Beck present the television to staff nurse Michelle Jeynes

Youngsters waiting for appointments at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital can now watch television thanks a donation from a King’s Lynn woman.

Vera Jackson presented a television and DVD player to the Roxburgh Children’s Centre in memory of her late husband Peter.

Mr Jackson, who died in January last year, loved to watch sport on the television, particularly cricket, and his wife wanted it to be put to good use.

After hearing of her plan, staff at Hughes, in Lynn’s Norfolk Street, delivered the television to the hospital along with donating the fixtures and fittings.

Mrs Jackson said: “Peter and I wanted to give something back to the hospital as the staff were really good to my husband and myself.

“I am really grateful to Hughes for their help, it was really kind of them to support me in making this donation.”

Mrs Jackson presented the televison to staff nurse Michelle Jeynes with Aaron Beck, senior sales at Hughes.

Mr Beck said: “Hughes are always willing to support good causes such as the hospital and it was a pleasure to support Mrs Jackson in making this donation.”
