MIDWIVES from Warwick Hospital have done even more than usual to support the care of babies by swapping their uniforms for more glamourous attire and stepping on the catwalk at a fundraising fashion show.
A team from the hospital’s maternity department took part in a 45-minute display of ladies’ fashion at House of Fraser in Solihull, which was followed by a raffle with prizes donated by businesses from around the area, including Toni & Guy, Bravissimo, Mamas & Papas, Monkey Music, Parkinsons, Clarins, JoJo Maman Bebe, Planet and House of Fraser.
The event raised almost £700 towards the department, whose midwives deliver more than 3,000 babies every year.
Wendy Jones, head of midwifery at the hospital, said: “It was a fantastic evening for all and raised a considerable amount for the maternity department. The staff did a great job on the catwalk and thoroughly enjoyed it.”
