MAKE a date and make some money for The Hunts Post's New Life Appeal by taking up one of the latest offers that will raise funds for two baby units at Hinchingbrooke Hospital.
Ramsey photographer Anna Wiskin is lending her support and skill to the campaign which will raise £70,000 for maternity and the special care baby unit at the Huntingdon hospital.
For the fourth year, Anna has created a calendar with photographs she has taken of babies born at Hinchingbrooke and each year the profits are given to the hospital (about £1,200).
However, this year, Anna will give the proceeds to the New Life Appeal as well as putting on a special photographic offer to help with the campaign.
The calendars are available at the moment for £2.50 - half price.
Anna is also offering a half-price photographic sitting fee for babies up to six months old - £15 instead of the usual £30 - with the fee going to The Hunts Post New Life Appeal.
This offer will continue until September so parents can save half the price of the sitting and make a donation to the hospital at the same time.
Anna said: "I want to back The Hunts Post campaign because the paper has always helped me sell my calendar and I wouldn't have been able to raise so much money without that support, so it is only fair that I return that support.
"I wanted to raise money for the hospital because it makes me angry that NHS midwives are talked about so dismissively, when we have an absolute jewel of a maternity unit here.
"My two children were both born at Hinchingbrooke Hospital and we had absolutely fantastic treatment."
Readers from across Cambridgeshire can join in the fundraising and support a very worthy cause by contacting The Hunts Post. Already readers are planning a host of events and concerts, which we will report on in detail throughout the year as the dates approach.
