Nurse in charge at Kettering General Hospital’s Special Care Baby Unit, Suzy Edgar, said: “This is a great challenge set by Willow and it’s brilliant that she has chosen to raise money for SCBU. We are lacking on developmental care items and would particularly like some Zaky hug hands which are heavy bean-filled bags which are given the scent of the parent and are laid across or alongside the baby and used as a comforter when the parent isn’t there.
“At the moment, due to Covid, only one parent at a time, wearing a mask, is allowed to be with their baby and with restricted hours between 9am and 5pm and parents can’t stay overnight which is really impacting on parent bonding and breast feeding. Zaky hands could really help with comforting the baby when their parents aren’t there.
“They are expensive at £80 each so any fundraising towards them would be very gratefully received.”
Willow is hoping to raise enough to buy 8 Zaky hug hands.
