Families at Worcester to benefit after local golf club donation
Families of babies born prematurely are set to benefit after a kind donation to Worcestershire Royal Hospital.
The NICU at the hospital received the £750 donation from the Bransford Golf Club after it was chosen as its charity of the year by club captain Peter Sheppard.
Peter and his partner Jenny Bennett from Kempsey visited to donate the cheque six years after their grandson was cared for in the unit having been born 16 weeks premature.
The golf club raised £1,500 in total, splitting the donation between the NICU and premature baby charity, Bliss.
Sharon Ali, Matron for the Neonatal Unit, says: "This money will go towards renovating the parents' flat where they can stay overnight to be near their newborn baby."
