A west Norfolk family have donated more than £7,000 to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in their late son's memory.
Daniel Gooch was 40-years-old when he was killed while working as an asphalt operative in Surrey last June, and money raised at his funeral was donated to the hospital's Macmillan Cancer Care and Treatment Fund.
Mr Gooch's parents, Derek and Linda Gooch, from Upwell near King's Lynn, chose to donate the £7,579 to the cancer care centre after Mrs Gooch had treatment there.
Mr Gooch Snr said: 'Daniel is so very loved and made an incredible impact on so many people's lives, more than 400 people attended his funeral.
'It is an unbelievable amount of money to have raised and we would thank everyone who contributed.
