A DEDICATED six-year-old has raised more than £100 for babies on the Neonatal Unit at Colchester General Hospital.

Anna White-Cook wanted to raise money to help children after both she and her older brother Elliott, 14, spent time on the Neonatal Unit.

Her mum Claire said Elliott spent a month in hospital as he was born at 32 weeks.

She said: “ She came out cold and blue so she was taken into intensive care for the night.”

Anna, who attends Highfields Primary School in Manningtree, managed to make £152 by selling her decorations Her mum added: “Its not bad going considering she is a child with a pot of glitter".
