Donation to the Maternity Unit

Friends of Airedale News

When Friends of Airedale were approached to donate fifteen variable heights cots to the maternity unit they were very happy to help. The cots which were donated last year are adjustable height and are designed to promote safe sleeping and enhance the bond between mother and baby.  Here’s our volunteer John Lofthouse having a look at one of the cots with Clare Stowell the Ward Manager. 

A huge thank you …
