An avid fundraiser has collected £1,500 for Weston Hospicecare 
by dressing up as the Queen.

Marcus Eastman, from Weston, took part in a royal walk through the town to raise money for the charity which cared for his wife Jeanette before she died.

He recruited family members and friends to dress as other royals and held bucket collections.

Marcus has been a loyal supporter of Weston Hospicecare over the past 10 years and has raised more than £11,500.

Community fundraiser, Rachel Mansfield said: “Marcus is a great supporter of the hospice, and this year he organised a walk from the hospice to Nashley House in Weston dressed as the Queen while raising £1,500.

“A key way the hospice is able to provide free treatment to those with life-limiting illnesses is through fundraising activities, so Marcus’ support over the past decade has been invaluable and greatly appreciated.”
