Endurance Race runners raise money for specialist unit


Neo Natal unit patients at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital will be benefitting from donations made from two families after their children were treated at the specialist unit.


Chris Gill from Silverton and Sam Fice from Thorverton took part in the Endurance Life Race to raise over £2500 for the Neo Natal Unit (NNU), which provides special and intensive care for newborn babies within the Exeter area and also for other infants in the South West Peninsula


Network if care cannot be provided in the local unit.

Chris’s Daughter Molly and Sam’s son and daughter William and Chloe all spent time at the RD&E NNU when they were first born. They said: “This was a challenge we really wanted to do and wanted to be able to raise some money for the unit after everything they have done for our families.”


Senior Matron Sue Prosser welcomed the families back to the unit to receive the donation. She said “We are extremely grateful for the donation. The money will be spent on a new syringe feeding pump which helps to continuously drip feed vulnerable babies on the unit.”


The Endurance Life Race was a two day non stop race from coast to coast across the south west terrain
