A COUPLE whose baby daughter owes her life to Hinchingbrooke Hospital's special care baby unit has raised more than £3,000 for the facility.
Eamonn and Claire Nicholson-Clinch completed the famous 'Three Peaks Challenge' with friends to help support The Hunts Post's New Life Appeal.
The challenge involves climbing the three highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales in a single day.
Mr Nicholson-Clinch said: "It took us just over a day in the end - we managed it in 30 hours but it was an enjoyable experience and quite a challenge."
Mrs Nicholson-Clinch added: "The SCBU is close to our hearts because our daughter Freya was born eight weeks prematurely.
"The staff on the unit are superb. Without their specialist equipment and expertise many more children would lose their fight for life."

The couple, from Roxton, just south of St Neots, handed over a cheque for £3,001 to the SCBU last week - and believe the total may reach £3,500.
The amount is the highest donation by an individual(s) so far as The Hunts Post looks to raise £70,000 for maternity services at Hinchingbrooke Hospital.
nThe walkers who completed the challenge with Claire and Eamonn were Graham Walsingham, Stuart Bennett and Alistair Law.
