WARWICK Hospital’s Special Care Baby Unit has received a generous donation from owners of the Oak pub in Warwick.

The donation of £2,000 was presented to Margaret Mayhew, neo-natal midwife, and will go towards purchasing additional equipment for the unit and making enhancements to the environment.

The Oak pub raised the money by receiving donations from customers and members of the public, conducting various events including a bingo game and holding a book exchange service.

The fund-raisers have close links with the unit through children and grandchildren who have previously required attention from the department. Jasper Gibson, one of the Oak’s customers, donated £200 of the total after his children were cared for there.

Margaret Mayhew said: “This donation is fantastic and I would like to thank of all the members of the public who helped to raise the money. The donation will contribute to buying additional specialist equipment which is very expensive.”

Lee Palman, manager of the Oak pub, said: “It has been a pleasure donating this.

“Many of our customers have either had experience with the Unit or know somebody who has. We hope our contribution makes a difference.”
