Family raise funds for Romford hospital’s charity
A woman who was cared for at Queen’s Hospital donated more than �3,000 to the hospital’s charity as a way of saying thank you.
Lois and her husband Mark Oliver presented the funds to the neurological department at the hospital in Rom Valley Way, Romford recently.
The couple’s daughter, Abigail said: “It’s nice to give back. There is always someone else going through the same thing that happened to us.”
The fundraising was a combined effort.
Abigail raised �2,000 by running a sponsored half marathon, whilst the rest of the money was raised through a charity evening, which included a Rat-Pack tribute band and a raffle.
