A nursery teacher from Letchworth has raised £2,200 for the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation to mark the 25th anniversary of her own life-saving transplant.

Salma Razzaq took on a 24-hour sponsored silence as well as a technology ban to raise the cash for the charity.

She said: "It wasn't an easy weekend. I felt like Charlie Chaplin - I have never written so many notes to my friends, but it was worth it!
