A GROUP that supports a hospital has received more than £2,000 to help fund equipment.

The League of Friends of Gosport War Memorial Hospital received £1,076 from salon Affinity Hair and Beauty in Stoke Road, Gosport, along with £1,200 from Waitrose in Stoke Road.

They will spend the cash on a portable optical spectrometer to monitor jaundice in newborn babies.

The equipment was suggested by staff at Blake Birthing Centre in the hospital, as it will avoid the need to take blood from the patient and wait for results from Queen Alexandra Hospital in Cosham.

The money was received at the league’s quarterly meeting at the hospital on Thursday.
