A FAMILY of an Ipswich toddler have raised money to say thank you to a hospital who saved their little boy's life.

Emma Sawyer of Kingston Road and her cousin Heidi Driver of Elmcroft Road held a disco, buffet and grand draw and raised £1,900 for Guys Hospital.

Emma's baby, Tommy, was born with a heart condition and would never have survived without a lifesaving operation when he was just five days old.

Heidi's boyfriend, Paul Mills, 29, of Elmcroft Road underwent the same operation when he was 13. He now has a three-year-old son named Connor.

Tommy, who will be three years old in February and has a six year old sister Chelsea, is just like any other toddler of his age, said his grandmother Sandra, of Ulster Avenue.

Emma and her husband Anthony, and Heidi and Paul would like to thank everyone who bought tickets for the disco which was held on Saturday, December 7 at St Clements Social Club.

Around 250 tickets were sold on top of draw tickets and auction items.

The cheque is expected to be handed to Guys before Christmas.
