ST IVES: Fundraising couple say thanks with Floods Tavern’s first night
A ST IVES couple celebrated their first night behind the bar of the Floods Tavern with a fundraising night for Special Care Baby Unit at Hinchingbrooke Hospital.
Carl Anderson and Georgie Overall’s 16-month old daughter Daisy almost suffocated when fluid from within the womb enters her lungs at delivery.
Her life was saved by doctors at the SCBU and as thanks Mr Anderson and Miss Overall staged a fundraising raffle for the team at their opening night on Friday.
Dr Hilary Dixon from SCBU and St Ives mayor Martin Collier attended the night and Cllr Collier pulled the first pint.
The fundraising continued throughout the weekend with half-price river cruises and live music on Saturday.

Mr Anderson, 31, who ran the bar under the pub’s former owners, said: “We raised a few hundred pounds for SCBU, but even if it had been �1000 or �100,000 it would not be enough to thank them for what they have done.” A donation jar for the hospital will be permanently placed on the bar.
