A proud father has smashed his fundraising total to rebuild a play area at the hospital which saved his son’s life.

On January 11, 2009, Ivan Hollingsworth and his wife Nadine’s son Seb was born with a congenital heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot.

Seb, who will turn five on Saturday, was given lifesaving surgery, and in September 2009 Ivan started to raise money for CHUF (Children’s Heart Unit Fund) at the Freeman Hospital, with the aim of reaching £333,000 to rebuild the playroom attached to Ward 23, and develop the outside play area.
