Staff and patients on the Brockington Mother and Baby Unit at St George’s Hospital in Stafford were delighted to receive a range of gifts from a grateful family.

Leicestershire Mum, Melissa Holt spend two months on the unit with daughter Libby and she and her husband Gareth were so grateful for the support they received that they wanted to give something back.

Rather than buying Christmas presents for family and friends, Melissa and Gareth bought pictures, toys, baby supplies and toiletries for the unit. In return, family and friends also made donations to the unit rather than buying presents for them.

Ward Manager Jennifer Lovell-Hipgrave has received a special Care and Compassion Award from South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust after her brave actions helped save the life of 18 month old Sofia Bickerton.

Jennifer was shopping in Telford with husband Michael, a West Midlands Ambulance Service paramedic, when someone came running into the shop asking if there was anyone with medical training who could assist next door. They hurried to help and found young Sofia blue and lifeless when they arrived, with a marshmallow stuck in her airway. Jennifer and Michael set to work, with Michael doing chest compressions and Jennifer mouth to mouth which they kept up for 15 minutes until the ambulance arrived, luckily dislodging the marshmallow in the process.
