The vital funds were raised in memory of Bethany Mycroft at a coffee and cake day on Friday (November 22).

This is the fifth coffee and cake day for ‘vibrant and talented’ Bethany, who passed away in 2015 aged just 14.

Following her death, her family were found to have a condition called brugada syndrome, which affects the electrical signals to the heart and in certain circumstances can cause it to stop with no warning.
