STAFF at Weston’s NatWest dressed up as doctors and nurses to raise money for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Southmead Hospital in Bristol.

Their inspiration was seven-month-old Harrison Maher from Wick St Lawrence who was born at just over 29 weeks in September and weighing just 3lb 4oz.

Harrison appeared on the day with his mother Charley West, the bank’s regional director, while the team cycled all day on an exercise bike in fancy dress.

They also held a cake sale to raise as much money as possible for the unit. Anyone who would like to make a donation can still do so by visiting the branch in High Street.
