Norfolk fundraisers have presented a £62,000 cheque to Cancer Research UK - raised in memory of an inspirational woman at the heart of their family.

Norfolk farmer Geoff Gapp, of Great Moulton, near Long Stratton, decided to raise money for pancreatic cancer research following the loss of his wife Gunvor at the age of 65.

He led a dedicated group of family and friends, known as "Gunvor's Gang", who embarked on an extraordinary fundraising effort ranging from high-speed ziplining, marathon running and off-road cycling to quiz nights, school sales and an Auction of Promises.

The team gathered to present Cancer Research UK with a cheque for £62,000, the total raised in just two years.

Sophia France, the charity's relationship manager for Norfolk and Suffolk, said: "Geoff set an ambitious goal to fundraise £20,000, but because of his and the gang's commitment, dedication, and determination to our cause, they managed to triple this target. I am extremely proud of them all."

Cancer Research UK says many people with pancreatic cancer do not initially experience any symptoms, making it difficult for doctors to detect.
