DONATIONS are still flooding in for Terri Calvesbert who is recovering well from another major operation.

The five-year-old will be in Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford, for at least another month after the surgery on her hands and neck a month ago.

The Star's fund for her future now stands at £107,253.

Recent cheques include £385 from Nigel Jackson of Lowestoft, and £1,030 from Jon Bird of Norwich - who both raised money when they ran the London Marathon.

A donation of £120 also came from David and Shirley Cook from the Garden Tea Rooms at Beccles who held a draw on their last day of running the business.
