A fundraising baton to help a life-saving charity has been passed from mother to daughter.
Diane Cross-Gower, from Guist, and family took on fundraising for East Anglian Air Ambulance after her 81-year-old mother suffered an injury in May last year.
She said: "Four family members and two friends carried out a skydive at Beccles airfield in July last year and we held open days. A cheque for £5,331 was handed to the charity at its base at Norwich airport on November 8.
"Mum has the Manor Farm riding stables at Lyng and carried out fundraising for the air ambulance for 15 years, raising thousands of pounds.
"Unfortunately, she had an accident with a horse and cart, and is now in a wheelchair.
