A Leven woman has helped to raise over £2400 for the Special Care Baby Unit at Victoria Hospital after her son was treated there.

Susan Berry presented the money to nurses at the unit last weekend in a bid to thank them for the care her son Nathan received during a five-day long stay last October after he was born suffering from respiratory distress syndrome.

And to make it even more poignant, Karen Gale, one of the nurses who treated Nathan, was there to receive the cash.

“They were delighted with the donation,” said Susan.

To raise the money, Susan organised a disco night at Leven Thistle Golf Club last month.

As well as a raffle - for which several local businesses donated prizes - there was also an auction and irish bingo.

“We had two tables full of raffle prizes,” Susan said. “I’d like to thank all of the businesses who donated prizes and all who attended. It was a really good night. We raised a total of £711 from the auction which included a pair of signed boxing gloves from Ricky Burns. ”

Party-goers were also treated a demonstration by the Jax School of Dance, which daughter Lucy attends, and it Susan’s mum and brother, who work in the Clydesdale Bank and B&M’s helped to raise cash too.
