THREE sisters have done their bit to repay two life-saving charities.

Twins Lucy Richardson and Hannah Goddard, along with older sister Amy Ellis, enlisted the help of a convoy of other mums and their children to walk around Thetford for Great Ormond Street Hospital and the Meningitis Trust last Thursday.

Amy, now 30, was treated at Great Ormond Street as a baby when she was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder and 28-year-old Hannah contracted meningitis when she was 17.

Lucy said her sisters’ experiences had made the two causes particularly important for them.

“The causes had a hand in saving both my sisters’ lives so we wanted to give something back,” she said.

The walk raised around £900.
