Patients across West Norfolk will benefit from the legacy of this generous man.

Kenny Lake, a retired lorry driver, passed away at the age of 94 in August last year and left more than £60,000 to the QE. 

His brother John Lake and niece Caroline Harper presented £60,190 to The King's Lynn Hospitals' League of Friends Chair Penny Hipkin along with Margaret Mounsey and Carole Crake.

In April this year, the family presented a total of £12,000 to the Hospital with £1,000 going to Rudham, £1,000 to the Neonatal Unit and £10,000 to the Macmillan Centre.


Speaking after the latest presentation, Mrs Harper said: 

"Kenny was a kind and generous man who was a great supporter of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital."

Chairman Mrs Hipkin said: 

"This is an incredibly generous bequest from Mr Lake and it will make a huge difference to the patients and staff. Thanks to this donation, we will be able to offer greater support to the Trust."
