A foundation set up in memory of a cancer patient has donated £15,000 to Farleigh Hospice to help them continue caring for people during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Paul Brame Foundation, set up in memory of Paul Brame, from Hatfield Peveral, who was just 35 when he lost his battle with secondary cancer of liver in 2017.

Paul and his family both received care and support from Farleigh Hospice.

Charities like Farleigh Hospice rely on donations and fundraising events, both of which has been in short supply during the coronarvirus pandemic.

Speaking about the foundation’s donation, John Brame said "Farleigh Hospice, like so many other charities, have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

After Pauls death, his brother John set up the Paul Brame foundation.

"This seemed like a perfect opportunity for Paul’s foundation money to kick in and help not only an amazing charity, but a charity close to home, and a charity that also helped to care for and support Paul Brame."

Alison Stevens, Chief Executive of Farleigh Hospice said "Everyone at the hospice would like to thank the Paul Brame Foundation, particularly Laura Everard and Paul’s mother, Carole Brame, for their fundraising efforts and kind donation.

"It is thanks to the support of local foundations and our local community we can continue to care for people living with life-limiting illnesses and support the NHS through these challenging times."
