Lauren Best donationCambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust has received a donation of £800 for Holly Ward at Hinchingbrooke Hospital.

The money was raised by Lauren and James Best in memory of their daughter Mya-Louise who sadly passed away in June 2016.

Lauren said:" Our little girl, Mya-Louise, aged 6½, passed away in June 2016 from liver failure.

"We raised £800 last November on what would have been our princess’s 7th birthday selling Christmas cards, wristbands and candles and we will be doing this as an annual event.

"The reason we raised this for Holly Ward is for the wonderful help we received not just for our princess but for our entire family unit. We are forever grateful for all the care and support that was given to us from all the medical and non-medical staff whenever Mya-Louise was admitted, especially around this time last year, when she was on Holly Ward for the last four weeks of her life.

"We wanted to do something positive on the anniversary of our beloved princess Mya-Louise Robyn Best."

The cheque was presented to Sandie White, Holly ward and paediatric outpatient manager, by Sean Best, Mya-Louise’s brother. Sandie said: "We are extremely grateful to Lauren, James and Sean for this wonderful donation to Holly Ward. The money raised will be used to furnish our sensory room with soft bean bags."
