Terminally ill mum thanks Bray vicar who found her lost camera

A terminally ill mother is celebrating after a lost camera containing treasured pictures of her family was handed in today.

Karen Targett, who was diagnosed with terminal cancer in January, launched an appeal in this week's Maidenhead Advertiser for help to find her digital camera, which she lost after dining at the Waterside Inn in Bray with her husband Andy, 43, and her eight-year-old daughter Isobel on Saturday.

The 44-year-old, who lives in Hereford, was heartbroken after discovering the camera was missing, as she was hoping to make a scrapbook of memories for her young daughter.

But today she said she is 'over the moon' after the camera was handed in by the Vicar of Bray.

The Rev Richard Cowles

The Rev Richard Cowles spotted the camera on the porch of St Michael’s Church on Saturday and contacted the Advertiser after reading Karen’s appeal.

The former nurse said: "We just thought we'd never get it back and that our memories would be lost.

“I'm so happy because this really means so much to us, I can't thank the vicar enough."

She added she believes someone may have picked the camera up and put it on the church porch for safe keeping.

The family are also making a donation to the church to thank them for looking after the camera.
