Two sisters are gearing up to travel 30 miles on their scooters in a bid to raise cash for The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) in King’s Lynn.   

Nine-year-old Polly Anderson and seven-year-old Robyn Symons have already raised £565 for the QEH’s Maternity Bereavement Suite appeal.  

Accompanied by their parents James and Ellie, their baby sister and their dog, the pair hope to raise as much cash as possible in their sponsored scoot.

Ellie Anderson, Robyn’s mother, said: “As a family we are really active, and at the moment going for a walk and getting fresh air is the highlight of our day!  

“So Polly and Robyn decided they wanted to put this time to good use and do a sponsored scoot to raise money for the new Maternity Bereavement Suite which desperately needs funds in order to support families.

With thanks to funds raised by the local community and the trust’s own charity, the much-needed redevelopment received the go-ahead in November 2020, but further funds are needed to furnish the facility and make it as welcoming as possible.
