CHILDREN at St Ives Day Nursery held an Easter egg raffle and raised £76 for The Hunts Post New Life Appeal.

The raffle was organised by nursery worker Sarah Tharme, from St Ives, whose son Liam, now eight, was treated in the special care baby unit (SCBU) at Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon.

He was in SCBU for a month after he was born seven weeks early.

Liam and his mum Sarah visited The Hunts Post offices to bring us in the cash.
