STAFF at a Co-operative Food store raised hundreds of pounds for premature babies.

The shop, in Forton Road, in Gosport, raised £800 for Queen Alexandra Hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

Employees Ann and Tania visited the Cosham site to hand over the cheque. Ann said: ‘We like to give to causes close to our hearts. Our staff members have family being treated here so we used our charitable funds to help provide new equipment.’

Helen Redding, senior sister in NICU, added: ‘The funds will purchase a Wee-site which is a piece of equipment designed up help us locate tiny veins to make it easier to fit an IV to a newborn baby.’
