Family fundraiser to say thanks to hospital

The family of premature twins who overcame complex medical problems to survive are holding a charity event to raise money for the Neonatal Ward at Lincoln County Hospital. The twins, Freddie and Archie, were born there last August. They weighed less than a kilo and needed months of intensive care.

Ema Fletcher, the twins' Auntie, decided to organise a charity event as Freddie and Archie are now a year old and are doing well. It will take place at the Monson Arms, Skellingthorpe Road, Lincoln. The event runs from 2pm to midnight and includes live bands, a bouncy castle and face painting.

“We are delighted to be able to raise money for such a worthy cause. All the doctors and nurses do such a wonderful job and it’s lovely to be able to give something back.

– Ema Fletcher, Auntie

Money raised at the event will be divided between Lincoln County Hospital, Nottingham City Hospital and Queens Medical Centre Nottingham where the twins were also treated.
