Wymondham Medical Practice staff raise hundreds for Star Throwers in memory of colleague

A charity quiz night was organised by staff at Wymondham Medical Practice to raise money for Star Throwers in memory of a colleague who lost her life to cancer this year.

A total of �631 was raised by Laura Maddams and Sue Brown through numerous activities including the quiz, games and estimating the weight of a cake baked by Jane Bull.

Their colleague Beverley Rudrum, 51, passed away on February 8. She joined the medical practice in 1996 and during her illness she raised money for Star Throwers by knitting.

The Wymondham-based charity is dedicated to supporting and advising people in East Anglia who are affected by cancer, or are at particular risk of developing cancer.

Nurse Julie Hatton completed a 100 mile sponsored walk in Scotland and nurse Sarah Phinn donated proceeds from the sale of jewellery she made.
