Christmas SCBU Toddle



The SCBU Toddle saw 150 adults and children make their way from The Scarborough Spa to North Bay Beach Chalets to raise money for the Special Care Baby Unit at Scarborough Hospital.

Not only have the toddlers raised over £4700 in sponsorship so far, but they gathered a further £100 in their collecting tins from the generous people they saw on route.

Community Fundraiser Maya Richardson said “Despite it being a very cold morning, everyone was in good spirits and really got involved with the festive cheer of seeing Santa at the end. For passer-bys who saw lots of children walking, singing and enjoying themselves, it was a lovely sight.”

Natasha Walker said “We all had an amazing time. It has been brilliant to be able to give a little back after what the staff on the unit did to help our little girl who will be one year old tomorrow. Thank you for letting us be a part of this amazing morning.”

The money raised will help to buy various items for the unit including a Twin Cot so twins can be placed in the same cot where appropriate instead of being separated and some story books for parents to read to their babies.

While contagious viruses are active year-round, winter is a prime time for norovirus, colds, influenza (flu), and other respiratory illnesses.


These infections are highly contagious, so we urge people to stay away unless their visit is absolutely essential to help reduce the spread of infection within our hospitals.

Hospitals are full of sick people, many of them frail and elderly, so bringing germs into a hospital is the worst thing you can do.  We have an active programme of infection prevention but we can’t spot visitors who really shouldn’t be here.  Please stay at home if you’re unwell to help aid the wellbeing and recovery of our patients.
