A group of participants in the National Citizen Service (NCS) campaign have been helping to make life a little easier for newborn babies and their parents at Lynn's Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

The group visited the hospital's neo-natal intensive care unit (NICU) on Monday to hand over dozens of gift boxes they have prepared through the proceeds of their fundraising activities.

The project was run from Lynn’s College of West Anglia campus, a hub for the government-backed NCS programme, which aims to give young people challenges and build skills for work and life.

The group was inspired to support the NICU unit by one of its members, Katie Flack, who spent time on the unit as a baby.

They raised around £250 through the proceeds of a bake sale held at the Halifax branch in Wisbech and pledges made to an online fundraising page.

The money was then used to buy items such as sleepsuits, creams, nappies and soft toys to put in the boxes which the group then decorated.
