Over 500 party to help vulnerable babies

A SPECIAL party for special children has raised over �4,000 for neonatal units.

Babies cared for over the past 10 years at the special care baby units of the Lister Hospital and QE11 attended a reunion at Knebworth School.

Over 500 people went along to the party organised by hospital staff and parents of former patients. The money raised will go towards providing neonatal units.

Mum of eight-year-old twins Peta Sales said: “It meant so much to see the special care baby unit nurses again. My twins are only here now due to all their commitment and dedication.”

Parent organiser, Camilla Hamilton said: “This is the first time a reunion has been organised on this scale and we were amazed at its success. So many people have said how much they enjoyed the party and so we will definitely be looking to hold a similar event in the future.”
