A pub in Wymondham is running a series of raffles to raise money in support of a young woman with brain cancer.

The Railway in Station Road is selling raffle tickets to raise £100 for Cancer Research UK in support of Rachel Stannard, a staff member at the pub, whose daughter, Paige, has a form of cancer.

Paige, who is in her early 20s, spent most of last year battling the cancer.

Mrs Stannard is aiming to raise a total of £1,000 for the charity.

Peter Ford, pub owner, said raffle tickets could be bought on their own without any other purchase at the pub, and all the proceeds went to Mrs Stannard's JustGiving fundraiser at www.justgiving.com/Rachel-Stannard3.

Mr Ford said: 'We want to help give Rachael and Paige the strength and determination to raise money for such important medical research.'
