A mum who vowed to raise money for the family centre which helped her while her son was in hospital has held her first fundraising event.
Georgia Gillett, whose son Oscar spent almost two weeks of December in Addenbrooke's Hospital having suffered seizures, has begun fundraising for The Sick Children Trust, who run Acorn House, where she stayed during the ordeal.
She held her first fundraising event this week, a pram walk through Gorleston, to kick start her campaign.
The event, which saw fellow mums from Great Yarmouth-based toddler's group the Butterfly Club walk through the town, raised £82.26 in cash.
The mums also raised £165 of vouchers and gifts from Gorleston High Street, to be raffled off at a future event.
