A MARATHON mum has pulled on her running shoes to raise money for a cause close to her heart.
Nisha Williams ran the London Marathon to raise money for Warwick Hospital’s Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) and the new Midwife Led Unit Birth & Babies Appeal.
And the Warwick lawyer managed to raise an impressive £900, which she says is her way of thanking the hospital for caring for her and her daughter Elina.
Nisha gave birth to Elina prematurely at the hospital, and the baby had to spend the first few days of her life in the SCBU.
Nisha said: My daughter and I received much-needed care and support from the staff at Warwick Hospital during this happy but difficult time. We want to help raise funds to say thank you and hope that it will help to ensure that other families receive the same high level of care.”
The money will go towards special baby cribs, furnishings and a therapeutic room in the new Midwife Led Unit and towards improvements for the SCBU.
Acting deputy head midwife Michelle Waterfall said: “We are delighted that Nisha has managed to raise so much for maternity at Warwick Hospital, I do not envy her running so far and the money will make a huge difference to improving our services.”
