Catering staff from Southport hospital helped raise £650 for the neonatal unit at Ormskirk hospital by doing a cake sale and raffle, Wednesday 24 June.

This idea came about after one of their colleagues first grandchild was born 11 weeks early and only weighing 2lb 13oz.

They were told that the unit really needed a new transporting incubator so decided to do a fundraising event to thank them for the wonderful care they are giving to Angela Wilsons granddaughter Wiloe Siena.

Angela said:

” I mentioned to my colleagues that I would like to do something to help raise some money towards the incubator and suggested a cake sale & raffle, the response was magnificent, each and every one of them helped in one way or another and I can’t thank them enough… What a fantastic team.

Wiloe Siena is doing really well and is now 3lb 4oz, she is one strong little lady and we just can’t wait to get her home in the very near future”
