A whopping £4,000 was raised from a fundraising stall set up outside of a Fenstanton house in memory of former Hunts Post receptionist Liz Roubinas.
The money will go towards the respiratory unit at Hinchingbrooke Hospital.
Charlotte Conroy and her son Teddy raised the amazing amount from the stall outside of their house that was set up during lockdown.
The pair wanted to honour the memory of Liz who passed away aged 66 at Hinchingbrooke recently after having lung cancer.
Charlotte said: “We wanted to do something positive during those difficult times, and also give the people of the village something to do while out on their walks.
