After the devastating loss of her young son to cancer four years ago, a Weymouth mother is helping to raise money and awareness for the charity that helped give her son another precious year.

Donna Zammit's 12-year-old Jamie lost his battle with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia in 2010 and she's been helping the Anthony Nolan charity ever since.

Today Donna is taking part in their 'Hero Day' where people across the country can dress up as a superhero to show everyone can make a big difference in the world.

She told Wessex FM: "We all have the potential to save someone else's life. I'm dressing up as Penelope Pitstop for the whole day. I did want to be Wonder Woman but at this time of year it's a little bit cold to be dressing up in that kind of outfit!"
