A postman and his friends at a Tilney St Lawrence pub have made a special delivery for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
Lee Collingridge and friends at The Buck Inn have raised £1,656.71 for the Roxburgh Children’s Centre by completing a tandem parachute jump at Chatteris in August to raise money for the centre.
Regulars at the Buck Inn, which is run by his parents Wendy and Peter, have also supported a charity auction and quiz night to boost funds for the site.
Mr Collingridge was thrilled with the amount raised.
He said: “I am really pleased to have raised so much money and the charity auction was once again a big success.

“I enjoyed the parachute jump. The views were spectacular and it was such a clear day we could see King’s Lynn from Chatteris.
“We are already planning for next year’s fundraising.”
