Have your say

an AUCTION raised cash towards special clothes for premature or poorly babies in hospital.

Laura Stothard organised the event, where a variety of prizes went under the hammer, to buy more Pop N Grow outfits.

The tiny clothes have special popper sleeves, stretch panels and mitten feet so drips can be inserted, and tests taken, more easily.

Mum-of-two Laura, of Sothall, became involved with the project after daughter Elsa was born prematurely at 30 weeks and handed over 20 babygrows to the Jessop Wing.

She said: “The auction went far better than hoped and raised nearly £1,500.”

Items in the auction included tickets to Disney on Ice at Sheffield Arena,

It was held on the Pop N Grow Jessop Wing Sheffield page on Facebook.
