Bob Nutt, who had Type 2 diabetes, passed away suddenly from a heart attack in February, aged 63.

Bob’s daughter, Lianne Rust, aged 41, who acted as quizmaster, said: “My dad had always supported Willen Hospice as my nan passed away due to cancer, so we decided to raise money to support both charities – Willen Hospice and Diabetes UK.

“It has obviously been a very difficult time for myself and my family.

“So as a group of mums that all do the school run together, we decided to do a charity night in memory of my dad.”

The evening included games stalls, face painting, a bring and share buffet and trophies and chocolates for the winning teams.

The Stantonbury Working Mens Club, in New Bradwell, donated the venue free of charge for the event, and nearly 100 raffle prizes were donated by local companies.

Lianne said: “The whole night was a fantastic testimony to great teamwork from myself and my group of friends in memory of a great man – my dad, Bob Nutt, who was very well known and loved by so many people.”
