Macmillan Cancer Care Support and the Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice have each received a cheque for £1,000 following donations made in memory of well-known Whittlesey woman Maureen Hunt.
Mrs Hunt was a long-time employee at the Co-operative store in the town, who died recently after a short illness.
Her husband Ray, daughter Anita and son Philip were on hand, along with some of her former colleagues at the Co-operative store, to present the cheques to Sue Ryder’s Jo Marriott and Macmillan clinical nurse specialist Linda Launchbury.
The donations were made at a packed St Andrew’s church following the funeral and from shoppers at the Co-operative store, where a book of condolence was opened in memory of Maureen, who had worked there in a variety of roles across several different departments and in a supervisory capacity since 1991.
A Co-operative spokesman said: “Maureen was a highly valued member of the management team and was well known and liked by the customers. She was a great friend to us all and will be sadly missed.”
