A mum has donated £1,800 to thank the two hospitals which saved her son's life.
Oliver Warner from Pott Row, near King's Lynn, was treated in The Queen Elizabeth Hospital's critical care unit in 2014 after an accident in which he ended up in a ditch.
Three years later, his mum Sally organised a hog roast with live entertainment to give something back to the unit along with St Thomas' Hospital in London, which also cared for Oliver.
Mrs Warner said: 'Without both of the hospitals, I know that Ollie would not be here but he is now a father and loving his life.
'This donation is our way of saying thank you and hopefully it will help someone else.

The family gave the QEH £500 and £1,300 to the ECMO unit at St Thomas's, which cares for people with severe respiratory failure.

'Nic Ioannou one of the consultants for the ECMO unit, told us that they are opening a new ECMO unit in the new year which will have 11 beds, so they will use the £1,300 that we raised to help buy more equipment,' sair Mrs Warner.
She added she would like to thank traders and friends who donated raffle prizes, along with insurer Adrian Flux, which donated money.
