A teenager raised £255 for charity by doing a sponsored skip.

Georgina Miller, from Leyland, raised the cash for the Baby Beat Appeal, because she was born prematurely.

The Baby Beat Appeal provides funding for the Sharoe Green Maternity Unit to ensure staff have the very latest equipment designed to monitor mothers-to-be and their unborn child through pregnancy to the point of birth and a safe delivery.

Karen Entwistle, from Baby Beat, said: “We are enormously grateful to Georgina for all her efforts.

“She organised and gained sponsorship via friends and family and did a magnificent job.

“All the funds raised will go towards ensuring that our Maternity Unit is kept at the very forefront of the technology available.

“This wouldn’t be achievable without kind people like Georgina.”
