Mini hero Toby tours unit

Toby and his parents and ward manager Wendy Kirwan

SCBU welcome a mini hero (in his civvies) after an amazing fundraising effort.

Eight-year-old Toby Burgess, from Clayton, Bradford  was born ten and a half weeks prematurely weighing 2lbs 15oz at Calderdale Royal Hospital and stayed with us for  seven weeks of his life in the Special Care Baby Unit. His parents said: " The care and support we received was amazing. Just being here has brought it all back. What happens is amazing and we always vowed we’d be back to give something back"

Toby took part in a  'fruit shoot mini mudder' (1 mile obstacle course) and after setting a target of £200 smashed it with nearly £900 backed by his family and friends and local pub.

He is coming in next week to present it and we look forward to welcoming our mini hero back to the unit.
