Parents of prematurely-born babies will soon be able to watch their newborn’s progress via video link thanks to a donation.
Charlie Tawse, from Keith, has raised enough cash to donate eight iPads to Friends of the Special Nursery, which supports babies, families and staff at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary’s neonatal unit.
Staff at the unit will be able to film the babies and upload the footage for parents who can’t make it to the hospital.
Mr Tawse’s three grandchildren all received special care at the neonatal unit, and he decided to raise money for the charity as a thank you.
He said: “My wife Fiona and I cannot put into words our respect and admiration for the neonatal unit staff and the work they do.
“I decided that, instead of having a 65th birthday party, I would have a fundraiser for the Friends of the Special Nursery.”
Katie Watters, head of fundraising for Friends of the Special Nursery, said: “We’re so grateful to Charlie and his family and friends for supporting the charity and the neonatal unit with this incredible donation.”
