Earlier this year, in January 2016, little Illiana Spence was born 9 weeks premature, weighing just 3lbs. Thanks to the hard work, dedication and support of all the staff at West Cumberland Hospital Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU), Illiana went from strength to strength and was allowed home after 5 weeks in their care. Without such a unit, Illiana would have had to have been cared for in a hospital in the North East, many miles from home. To show our gratitude and to support the unit, we are running the Cumbrian Run (13.1 miles) on 2nd October 2016 in the hope to raise as much money as possible. This money will be donated direct to West Cumberland Hospital SCBU itself.
