Friends and family provided a fitting legacy for popular publican Michael Brookman with a donation to the medical team who supported him throughout his final days.
Lifelong Norwich City fan Mr Brookman passed away from cancer aged 60 in August. His widow Andreanna raised £2,000 in thanks for the care he received from the oncology department at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
The couple ran the The Bell Inn, at Cawston for more than 20 years and the village was adorned in yellow and green for the funeral of the lifelong Canaries supporter.
Mrs Brookman said: 'Dr Gill Gray from the oncology department took care of Michael in his final hours and made sure he had a pain free death. I will never able to thank her enough.
'The money will help other cancer sufferers which is a wonderful tribute to Michael.'
