Kettering rotarians make baby care donation
THE Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) at Kettering General Hospital has received a £2,000 donation from Kettering Rotary Club (District 1070).
The money was raised at a charity Golf Day held with Kettering Golf Club in July.
More than 80 people attend the event that raised £2,000 for the Rotary Club’s chosen charity and £1,000 for Kettering Golf Club’s Charity of the Year.
Kettering Rotary Club president Malcolm Bithray is pictured here presenting a cheque for £2,000 to KGH Charity Officer Christina Kelly.
Malcolm selected SCBU as the beneficiary because his daughter, Tina Stanyon, has a three-year-old son, Seth, who had to spend a few days in the unit when he was born.
Malcolm said: “Tina had nothing but praise for the unit and the amazing work it does for premature babies. I wanted to show my appreciation so made the unit my Charity for the Year.”
SCBU lead nurse, Janet Ford, said: “I want to thank the club so much for their very generous donation to the unit. We will use the money to further enhance our efforts to provide excellent support and care for sick and premature babies and their families.”
