Roisin Larham, a member of the March Marlins swimming club, raised the money for Our Lady of Good Counsel Church in St John’s Road.

Roisin serves on the altar there and wanted to help Friar Paul raise money for funds following a massive restoration of the church hall.

She has previously raised money for the Little Princess Trust by having her hair cut super short to amke a wig for children diagnosed with cancer and said she wanted to help another good cause again.
