Local charity ‘Katrina Charity of Angels’ has made another welcome donation to the George Eliot Hospital’s Special Care Baby Unit.
David Emery who had set up the Charity, in memory of his daughter Katrina, visited the Unit to make a £1,850 donation to the nursing team with fellow fundraisers Yvette Peake and Sue Miles.
The group of friends have already collected over £10,500 over the last few years for the unit thanks to the hard work of the charity and donations from local people. Money was raised through collecting and recycling aluminium cans, recycling other items, charity raffles and busking. Local businesses are also now helping this innovative charity group by donating recycled goods.
Every penny donated to the charity has been given to help the lives of premature babies, a cause very close to David's heart. Money raised helps to buy new hospital equipment which provides the newborn babies with a better chance at life.
George Eliot Hospital Fundraising Co-ordinator, Jean Whittaker MBE said:” David and this charity have a long association with the hospital and we are truly grateful for their continuing efforts. Their donations are extremely welcome and continue to support babies and their families at the George Eliot.
