A woman is raising money to buy fans for a hospital ward after staff saved her life when she suffered heart failure.

Monica Crane, from Sutton, wants to buy fans for every room of Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon.

Mrs Crane is now raising the £1,000 needed to buy the fans by organising bingo evenings. She has also received donations from the community.
