Surprise 60th raises £500 for NICU

A West Norfolk family has raised hundreds of pounds to thank staff at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Charlotte Lloyd was treated at the unit after she was born two months prematurely on 25 June, 2016, after her mum Amy suffered pre-eclampsia.

Weighing just 3lb 7oz Charlotte spent the first month of her life in NICU and is now a happy and lively two-year-old.

Amy and her sister-in-law Michelle helped to raise £500 for the unit by throwing a surprise 60th birthday for Paul and Barbara Lloyd, of Ten Mile Bank.

A total of 75 friends and relatives surprised Barbara and Paul, who turned 60 within days of each other, in Denver Village Hall. People gave donations to NICU instead of presents.

Amy, 31, of Ten Mile Bank said: “The NICU team looked after Charlotte so well so we thought it would be nice to give something back to them.”

Michelle, 29, who lives in Downham Market, added: “We were pleased to have raised so much money for NICU and it was a really good party. We would like to thank everyone who contributed.”
