A mother from Weymouth whose daughter died of cancer has received a cheque at the Southampton Boat show to go towards a charity set up in her memory.

Project Zoe is raising funds to buy a boat for Chesil Sailability which helps disabled people take to the water.  

Their efforts have been boosted by a cheque for nearly two thousand pounds from Weymouth and Portland Marinas.

Zoe's Mum Sarah Lloyd says it's a fitting tribute to her daughter;

"Zoe sailed most of her life.  She had sailed to a number of places around the world on Tall Ships races.  She was always a very keen sailor, she was always very outdoor orientated. She was a real inspiration."
