The Big Build appeal was launched by the East and North Herts Hospitals' Charity and the Lister Neonatal Unit Families' Group in August and fundraisers are now close to their £338,000 target.

Hayley Edwards, media account manager for Comet publisher Archant, is supporting the appeal with a raffle after her son Ollie was born in the neonatal unit, two months premature.

She said: "They do fantastic work nursing terribly ill and premature babies and this is a cause so close to my heart."

Raffle tickets for £1 can be purchased at the Comet office in Stevenage's Primett Road before the draw on May 23.
