Have your say

A HOSPITAL ward is their home from home.

So the Sapio family wanted to give something back to the Ocean Ward at Southampton General Hospital, which has been providing care for their one-year-old daughter Gracie.

Gracie was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome and may need a heart transplant.

Gracie’s dad Dan Sapio, a builder from Chichester, has organised a charity darts competition at Westleigh Park in Havant to raise money for a charity that supports families whose children are on the cardiac ward.

The event takes place from 11am on Sunday and tickets are £5. More than 60 players have signed up to take part.

Mr Sapio said: ‘The charity keeps you going and it’s one less thing to worry about.’
