Roxann and Alistair from Biggleswade took part in this year's Rainbow Run, along with their friends and family, to raise funds to say thank you to the neonatal team at Lister Hospital for their care when their son, Alvin, was born prematurely earlier this year.

The teams, called 'Alvin's Army', raised an incredible £15,590 which will go towards refurbishing the parents' bedrooms on the neonatal unit.

Roxann said: "Alistair and I were inspired to get a few teams together for the Rainbow Run after our son, Alvin, was born prematurely earlier this year and spent a couple of weeks on the neonatal unit.

"We are immensely grateful for the care he received and wanted to do something to show our appreciation."

Alistair added: “It was lots of fun getting covered in paint and we're pleased to have been able to raise some money to help fund improvements to the bedrooms on the neonatal unit.”
