More than £900 was donated by people living in retirement housing to a charity that helps young people at risk of sudden cardiac death.

The cash was donated to the Nicola Emmerson Trust on behalf of the kind people at Kennedy Court in Fish Hill.

Nicola’s mum Julie set up the trust in memory of her daughter, who died on a night out in 2007.

She said: “We would like to thank Angela Johnson and everyone at Kennedy Court for their support over the past year.

“I have really enjoyed visiting everyone and will continue to pop in and have a cuppa and a chat with them all.”

House manager Angela, whose daughter used to go to school with Nicola, said: “We have been having charity days, where everyone brings some bric-a-brac down. We never expected to get that much.”
