Dad says thank you to hospital with 130-mile walk

Published 04/08/2014

A father has thanked the "fantastic" staff of the Royal Derby Hospital's neonatal unit who helped deliver his daughter, born 14 weeks prematurely.

Two-year-old Ebony Stinson spent the first four months of her life in the neonatal unit of the Royal Derby Hospital.

And now her dad, Craig, has organised an event to raise awareness of the important work the unit does. He will walk 130 miles around the clock to deliver baby items to seven different hospitals.

Craig said: "During my time on the neonatal unit at the Royal Derby Hospital, the staff were fantastic from day one. This is like a thank-you to them."

Sister Lisa Kelly, from the neonatal intensive care, said: "We're delighted and extremely grateful to Craig and his fellow walkers for raising awareness of World Prematurity Day by kindly donating much-needed items for the care of premature babies across the East Midlands.

"We are very proud of them for all they are doing and we wish them all the best."
