POORLY youngsters and their families will have help recovering at home thanks to a cash boost from a Bolton business.

Charity MedEquip4Kids was able to buy 17 oxygen saturation monitors for paediatric community teams in Bolton after Bolton engineering and design firm Bradshaw Gass donated £7,000 for the equipment.

The new monitors will allow the paediatric nurses to assess and treat children in their own homes.

Sarah Suthers, community fundraiser at MedEquip4Kids, said: “I wqould like to say thank you very much to Bradshaw Gass for their support of the charity. Children and babies in and around Bolton now have a better standard of health care due to the quality of equipment provided.”
