The mother of a Melbourn hit-and-run victim has spoken of the emotional moment her son’s friends and his brother handed over a £10,000 cheque to the hospital that cared for him.
Alex Jeffery, 21, tragically died in hospital after he was hit by a car in November last year.
His friends and brother Ollie raised the funds for Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust by cycling 160 miles from Bournemouth to his family home in August.
After handing over the cheque on Saturday, his mother Wendy said: “It was a very emotional moment, but I am proud at the same time. Hopefully as a group we will do more fundraising.
“The people involved in caring for Alex worked hard and were very dedicated and looked after him as well as they could.
