A friendship society has raised hundreds of pounds in memory of a four year old girl who died of a rare brain tumour.
The Fenland District of the Oddfellows Society chairman Irene Cook has been fund raising over the past year for Clic Sargent in memory of Mikayla Clark who died last April.
Various events were held last year including a barbecue at Doddington, an afternoon tea at Stonea, a tombola in Manea village hall, and a Sunday lunch at the Oliver Cromwell hotel.
They raised £1,775 which was presented to Karen Roberts from Clic Sargent on Valentine’s Day at the home of Mikayla’s parents Alyson and Neil Clark at their home in Stonea.
The total takes it to more than £40,000 that has been raised for good causes in Mikayla’s memory.
