A Sherwood Forest Hospitals staff member, his wife and family all donned their 1940s dancing shoes to raise £900 for the Trust’s Neonatal Unit.

Steve Davies, who works in King’s Mill Hospital as a materials management and goods receipt services co-ordinator, and his wife Angela decided to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary in style this year by hosting a 1940s themed party.

Instead of presents the generous couple asked for donations to the King’s Mill neonatal unit, a decision made to mark the care their nephew Benjamin received in six years ago.

Steve said: “Benjamin was looked after brilliantly when he was in the unit and is now a very healthy little boy.

When we were planning our anniversary party we thought that it would be good to give something back to the hospital and say a proper thank you.”

The money raised has been presented to the unit and will be used to benefit the hospital’s youngest patients.

Karen Fisher, acting chief executive at Sherwood Forest Hospitals, said: “It’s wonderful that people think of us when celebrating such a great anniversary.

My thanks go out to Steve, Angela and their friends and family who have made a real difference to patient care.”
