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.”

“They all did so well raising that amount of money and it’s great to know that the village community participated in lots of ways. We are thankful to everyone for their support.”
