A FAMILY have raised more than £500 for charity in the memory of their wife and mother.

Alex Bourn, and his daughters Jane Sedgley and Sue Stainthorpe, donated a cheque for £545 to Parkinson’s UK at the Salvation Army Hall, in Manning Road, Bourne, on Monday.

The cheque was given to the charity’s policy and campaigns officer Sarah Williams, who also spoke to people about the work of the charity and raised awareness of the disease.

The family raised money for Parkinson’s UK because of the support and fundraising their mother Pat Bourn did for the charity. Alex, who lives in Bourne, also suffers from Parkinson’s disease.

Jane, 55, from Queen’s Street in Stamford, said: “I would like to thank everyone who helped with the donations in the memory of my mother.

“Parkinson’s UK is a charity that was very dear to her heart.

“My dad is a sufferer and that’s where she would have wanted it to go.”
