Couple raise cash for specialist neonatal cot

Fundraisers presented a specialist cot to the Neonatal Unit at Ormskirk and District General Hospital.

Gareth Lee and Katie Jennings raised the cash through the 4 Louis charity which supports bereaved families.

The couple was spurred to raise the cash after losing their twins Rory and Oliver at 21 weeks.

The “cuddle cot” has a special cold mattress which allows babies to stay with their families for a few days following their death.

Angie Cullen, Bereavement Midwife, said: “We’re very grateful to Gareth and Katie who understand how valuable the use of a cuddle cot can be at such a sad time, and to the 4 Louis charity for continuing to provide us with equipment.”
