A fundraising effort founded by a grieving mother has handed £10,000 over to the hospital unit that cared for her newborn daughter.

Parents Helen and Paul Cruickshanks, along with their two children Sam and Libby, visited the paediatric intensive care unit at Chelsea’s Royal Bromptom Hospital to present the cheque.

Tragically baby Macy lost her battle against hypertrophic cardiomyopathy when she was just six weeks and one day old.

Now the family have set a new goal to raise £20,000 to pay for research into congenital heart defects, including the funding of a research fellow for six months.
