A painting of a Pakefield beach scene has been raffled to benefit East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) The Nook building project, which is now close to commencing construction.

Artist Carol Critoph, from Lowestoft, donated a pastel painting of Pakefield Beach that she had produced to be raffled at The Oddfellows Public House in Nightingale Road.

Tim Harris, a representative of the Lowestoft Friends of EACH, said: 'Carol has produced four other paintings that have been raffled and which have raised funds for the charity. We were delighted that her most recent work raised ?£800.'

To date £6.5m has been raised of the £10m needed to build the new hospice at Framingham Earl. The good news is that work on the building should start at the end of November.

The winner of the painting was Edwina Atkins and she was presented with her prize by organiser John Turley at a recent ceremony.
