Dedicated Rotary fundraisers donate incubator to Royal Derby Hospital

Published 04/08/2014

Members of the Derby Daybreak Rotary Club have donated an incubator to the Royal Derby Hospital after raising money through a walking challenge.

Walkers from the club completed the Three Peaks Challenge, climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowden in  less than 24 hours.

With the money raised from the event, along with several other challenges, the club raised more than £30,000 - a record.

This allowed them to buy the incubator and present it to the hospital.

Outgoing club president Brenda Adams said: "Everybody really pulled together to raise this money and I think it's brought us closer together as a group. I was particularly impressed with the £1 challenge. Almost everyone managed to turn it into £50 and many raised much more.

"We selected the Friends of the Baby Unit as one of our charities because there's been a fair few members over the years whose children were cared for there."
