Charlotte Cobb, who is taking part to raise funds for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, says: “My daughter and I will be taking part in the WardWalk to raise money for NICU, as the staff are miracle workers.

“They have supported my family in so many ways and made sure my daughter survived. Ava was born at 24 weeks and spent four months in the Unit.

Portsmouth Hospitals Charity aims to support the patients of Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust by improving existing facilities and by providing additional equipment, supporting research programmes and innovation in the development of services and education to both patients and staff.
