BABY Aida Elena Pienescu helped raise £178 for The Hunts Post New Life Appeal before she was even born.
Aida's mum and dad, Laura and Renato, invited their friends and family to guess the weight and the date of the baby they were expecting on March 23.
Aida was born weighing 8lb and 1.5 ounces on April 3. There were two winners in the contest.
Libby Jones, aged 14 from Hemingford, guessed that Aida would weigh 8lb 5 ounces, just four ounces out, and Catherine Stokes from Warboys guessed that she would arrive on April 2 - just one day before the actual birth.

Mrs Pienscu said: "We gave Libby some Boots vouchers as her prize and Laura some chocolates and champagne. Aida was 11 days late and I was 18 hours in labour but she is beautiful and we are very proud and we are very happy to send this donation to Hinchingbrooke Hospital."
The Hunts Post New Life Appeal for maternity services at Hinchingbrooke began in January and so far, £9,500 has been handed over to the hospital.
