Rosemere Cancer Foundation have unexpectedly benefited from a donation thanks to the generosity of the owners of Little Orchard Caravan Park.

A Weeton family, mum and son Linda Jane and Jonathan Johnson, who own the caravan park, were approached by the production company filming the second series of ITV’s ‘The Masked Singer.’

In a sequence expected to air on Saturday 30 January, it filmed ‘Sausage’ enjoying a holiday barbecue at the picturesque countryside park.

Some have guessed ‘Sausage’ could be actor and singer Sheridan Smith.

As a thank you for its permission to use the park for footage, the crew gave Linda and Jonathan £250, but instead of keeping the money, they decided to double it and donate it to Rosemere Cancer Foundation, as two close friends are currently receiving treatment at Rosemere Cancer Centre.

Linda said: “When the production company first got in touch, I thought it was a joke, so we took some convincing.

“After the filming, we were told not to say anything to anyone. Although I saw Sausage, I didn’t know who it was.

“The crew were no bother at all, but when members offered us the money, we told them we would give it to Rosemere Cancer Foundation.”

Linda Jane was one of Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s earliest supporters, organising supper dances, whist and domino drives and coach trips to raise funds for the charity when it launched with the opening of Rosemere Cancer Centre in March 1997.
