Get Your Toddle on For Scarborough Baby Unit

Get Your Toddle on For Scarborough Baby Unit

Published by Jon Burke at 2:11pm 11th November 2019.

The Special Care Baby Unit Christmas Toddle is back this year with the support of the North Bay Railway Company and a few extra treats.

The Christmas Toddle in aid of the special care baby unit (SCBU) at Scarborough Hospital is asking families to join them for a three mile walk from the Scarborough Spa to the Grotto at North Bay Railway to raise funds Unit. Staff are encouraging families to get involved and help make a difference to future families on Saturday 7 December.

The sponsored toddle starts at 10am and Santa will be waiting in his Grotto for the children to finish where there will be hot drinks and mince pies for the grown-ups.  

Community Fundraiser, Maya Liversidge said:

“The toddle is a great event. Families really make the effort with their fancy dress and this year there is a prize for the best dressed child. Over the last few years, the toddle has raised over £13,000 which has improved the facilities for those families who have to use SCBU. A double bed has allowed parents to stay together whilst their baby is on the Unit and a dedicated milk kitchen allows parents to more involved in their baby’s care."
