A mum who abseiled down the side of the hospital where her baby son is recovering from leukaemia is now attempting to raise £500 for baby toys.

Hayley Ruddy’s son Joey was diagnosed with cancer at just 8 weeks old and has spent most of his early life in hospital.

Joey is currently recovering from a bone marrow transplant but Hayley explained that there was a very limited number of toys for babies in the hospital and is therefore raisingmoney to buy the wards some new toys, walkers, high chairs, cot mobiles and a play house.

So far Hayley has raised £90 towards the total but hopes that some future fundraising events will help encourage donations.
