PARENTS have spoken of their pride after their daughter helped to raise £4,500 for a hospital unit that saved her life.

Jane and Kevin Prior were overjoyed their 23-year-old daughter Lauren Prior raised the cash for Wessex Neurological Centre at Southampton.

Lauren, who lives in Cowplain, was given life-saving surgery five years ago following a car crash.

Jane, from Chalton, said: ‘Kevin and I would both like to say how proud we are of Lauren. We were delighted to present the cheque and to see Dr Andy Eynon again and the staff who helped to save Lauren’s life. We will continue to raise funds and awareness for the unit.’
