Queen’s donation and legacy boost for King’s Lynn hospital league
An undisclosed donation from the Queen and an �83,000 legacy have boosted funds for the King's Lynn Hospitals League of Friends.
Donations made by members of the Royal family to charity are never revealed, but the Queen has been a regular donor to the League.
The legacy came from the estate of Mrs SA Bird, the League's newslatter reveals.
It adds: 'We were delighted to receive this legacy, which was an enormous boost to our funds.'
Book stalls held in February, March and April raised �760, while committee member Betty Curr raised �570 from the sale of kintted baby clothes.
