Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust has received a donation of £800 for Hinchingbrooke Hospital’s Holly Ward.

The money was raised by Lauren and James Best in memory of their daughter, Mya-Louise, who died as a result of liver failure, aged 6, in June 2016.

Lauren said: “We raised £800 last November on what would have been our princess’s seventh birthday selling Christmas cards, wristbands and candles and we will be doing this as an annual event.

“The reason we raised this for Holly Ward is for the wonderful help we received not just for our princess but for our entire family unit.

“We are forever grateful for all the care and support that was given to us from all the medical and non-medical staff whenever Mya-Louise was admitted, especially around this time last year, when she was on Holly Ward for the last four weeks of her life.”

The cheque was presented to Sandie White, the ward’s paediatric outpatient manager, by Sean Best, Mya-Louise’s brother.
