A BUSY day of fundraising for the Lisa Barnes Memorial Fund saw another £377 added to the total.

On Saturday charity volunteers hosted a market stall on Ely Market selling everything from cakes to books, CDs, DVDs and cuddly toys.

Later that day, Lisa’s Fund headed off to The Brook in Soham, for a Ladies Night where jewellery was sold and also a raffle was held. More than 100 ladies enjoyed the event including a very lively hen party.

With the addition of the £377.92 raised, Lisa’s Fund has now reached £71,000. Charity founder Robert Barnes is aiming to raise £100,000 for the Arthur Rank Hospice.
