Cancer charity volunteer Gemma Prince spent more than six hours in a bath of cold baked beans and raised more than £1,000 for the Stand Up to Cancer campaign.

Gemma, who works at the Cancer Research UK shop in Newmarket High Street, was joined by 14-year-old volunteer Jake Thomas-Mansfield who is doing his Duke of Edinburgh Award at the shop. “It was a fantastic effort and we had a superb response from the people of Newmarket,” said Hilary Hamilton, the shop manager.
