This picture shows St Albans girl Cora Varshney handing a cheque for £1,240 to Watford General Hospital to help pay for equipment.
Cora, 6, raised the money through a lemonade stand and a JustGiving page to support the Starfish ward, which has helped her through her brain tumor treatment.
She set up her stand on Saturday, August 4 to sell homemade American-style lemonade and ice lollies, which raised £325.
That and the JustGiving money will be used to fund equipment on the Starfish ward to the benefit of the children and young people who are treated there.
Cora’s mum Alanna said: “Everyone has been in awe of the amount Cora has raised and we are so proud to see her looking outside of herself at such a challenging time.
