Thespians help Special Care Baby Unit

A pantomime production in Southport brought smiles to the faces of neonatal staff at Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust when they were told the Special Care Baby Unit would benefit from a donation.

All Souls Amateur Dramatic Club wanted to give some of the proceeds from its annual play to the neonatal unit, where premature babies and newborns born with difficulties are nursed back to health.

The drama group decided to donate £250 to the Special Care Baby Unit from the profits made when thespians brought the stage to life with a performance of the much-loved Peter Pan story.

The club chose the Special Care Baby Unit at Ormskirk as one of the deserving charities because it recognises and praises the work the unit does in caring for sick babies.

Sue Marquiss, secretary of the All Souls Amateur Dramatic Club, said, “Every year we nominate a number of charities and then our members vote for the ones they want to give a donation to. We chose the Special Care Baby Unit because one of the girls from the club had a baby earlier in the year and praised staff at the neonatal unit for all their hard work in looking after her newborn.”

Clare Vattev, Manager at the neonatal unit, praised the club for its donation. She said, “The £250 raised from the pantomime will help the unit’s good work. Thank you to all who helped to raise the money.”
