The event at Cafe Nero in Sudbury was organised by 22-year-old Megan Felton who wanted to do something to help young cancer suffers like her friend Craig Lallement. His story was featured in the EADT earlier this year after he wrote heartwarming letters of thanks to his family, friends and fellow football players shortly before he died.

Next April Megan will run the London Marathon for the Teenage Cancer Trust. The recent fun day included a cake stall, raffle, face painting and games and was attended by members of Craig’s family such as his mum, Joy Lallement. Megan said: “It was really successful and we managed to raise a massive total of £845.16. I’m sure Craig would have approved.”
