Downham couple in fundraising quest for a famous London hospital

Downham Market parents Neil Brown and Hannah Bush have started fundraising for Great Ormond Street Hospital after their son, Harry, had a life-changing operation there. The couple have so far raised around £3,000 for the hospital through a Christmas coffee morning, two car boot sales and support from Clever Clogs, a play group in Downham.
