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.

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.
