08 February 2011 at 09:54

A clay pigeon shoot raised £770 each for the special care baby unit at Orsmkirk and District Hospital and Ormskirk Diabetic Centre.

It was organised by Ian Clarke, of Longton, near Preston, at the Dolphin Inn Shooting Club at Longton in memory of fellow member Bob Burdess, of Tarleton, who died recently aged 55.

He had been a patient at the diabetic centre and had connections with staff at the baby unit.

The cheque was presented by Bob’s uncle, Joe, and his wife, Lilias, of Tarleton.

Sister Margy Crotty said: “We have recently completed refurbishment of two family rooms on the unit thanks to the generosity of well-wishers. We will make sure this donation goes to similar good use.”
