A MUM has donated equipment to Wrexham Maelor Hospital, where her son died 11 years ago.
Rhian Parry handed over a blood saturation unit which cost £1,800 to the Special Care Baby Unit.
Rhian's son, Sion, died on October 2, 1993, from a cardiac-related illness and she decided to raise money in his memory.
Rhian, who lives in Mold, said: 'As last year was the 10th anniversary of Sion's death, we thought we would like to raise £1,000 in memory of him for the British Heart Foundation.
'As the total raised was a fantastic £2,800, we decided to buy a piece of equipment for the paediatric clinic at the Maelor Hospital. The remaining £1,000 was donated to the BHF.'
The saturation monitor is used to measure the oxygen levels in patients' blood so doctors can see if it's too high or too low.
Rhian added: 'We raised the money in many ways, such as raffles, car boot sales, coffee mornings and even a slimming club. Family and friends have been very supportive and donations have come from many places, including Sion's old school, Ysgol Glanrafon, and especially work colleagues at HSBC Mold, who raised money and got the bank to match the amount raised.'
She added: 'We are very grateful to everyone who helped us buy this monitor, which will be used extensively by many children like Sion at the clinics and on home visits when needed.'
