A shopper who feared he had lost his wallet in Ely city centre was so relieved to get it back he donated its entire contents to the East Anglia Children's Hospice Appeal.

collecting for the Milton Hospice outside Waitrose.
Collector Ethel Smith said: "This man came up to me and said he was so relieved to discover he hadn't lost his wallet that we could everything that was in it. I was so surprised."
