Baby boost in online auction for Sheffield babies

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.
