A charity that supports babies and mothers in maternity units at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals has launched a new competition to help raise much-needed funds.Advertisement
Baby Beat are encouraging members of the public to enter the competition to name and win a handmade nurse doll, created by Farington resident Judy Quinn.
Judy recently raised £120 for Baby Beat by auctioning a handmade NHS scrubs-wearing rag doll, and has since donated another doll as a prize for the latest competition.

Cathy Skidmore, from Baby Beat, said: “This is a fabulous opportunity to win a wonderful doll to keep or give as a gift, knowing it has been lovingly made for a good cause.
“We’d like to say a huge thank you to Judy for such a generous donation and for giving us a second doll – you’re a superstar Judy!
“We can’t wait to see some entries, and we are grateful to everyone who enters as all funds make a big difference to the mums and babies on our neonatal units.”
Anyone can enter by going to Baby Beat’s justgiving page and donating £2, before suggesting a name of their choice for the doll.
All funds raised will go to the charity, and the winner will be drawn at random on Sunday 5 July.
