An anonymous donor has pledged £300,000 to the charities Susan Taylor was fundraising for when she died swimming the English Channel.

The money will be split between Rainbows Hospice, in Loughborough, and Diabetes UK.

The total on Ms Taylor’s fundraising website stands at about £71,000 (right now Rainbows £60,815.96 and Diabetes UK £10,335.00) but the charities have been contacted and told of the extra £300,000.

Rainbows said Ms Taylor would have taken heart from the donation.
