A Charity set up in memory of a Pembroke man who was murdered six years ago, has donated £2,000 to the Special Care Baby Unit at Withybush Hospital.
The cash donated by the Dean ‘Bevsy’ Evans Charity will go towards the purchase of a resuscitation mannequin and Alaric syringe pump.
The unit currently has to borrow a mannequin to show new parents the correct procedure if the worst happens to their child.
The syringe pump is used in all hospitals throughout Wales and will adapt if a baby has to be transferred.
Charity Trustee Nikki Mackay said: “It was lovely meeting the team, they were so welcoming and helpful, and were so grateful for our efforts to help them gain the equipment they so rightly need to hand at all times. It was lovely to see how excited the staff were.
“Our donation will obviously help in the every-day running of the unit, making staff side jobs easier, which makes calmer parents and a happier baby. It is so heartwarming to know this chain will all happen because of Dean.”
The charity’s summer event ‘Cricket with a difference’ will take place at Stackpole cricket pitch at midday on Saturday September 1st.
