When baby David Nottingham was born ten weeks early at a mere 2lb 6oz, his parents knew he would have to battle to survive.
Tiny David spent seven weeks on Doncaster Royal Infirmary’s neo-natal unit – but thanks to the skill of the doctors and nurses he pulled through and now he weighs in at a healthy 12lb 14oz.
To say a huge ‘thank you’ to the staff at the hospital, his dad, also called David, is hoping his body will be as smooth as a baby’s bottom – for he is going to bravely undergo a full body wax in a bid to get the cash rolling in. He will also be accompanied by 12-year-old Rhys Burton, of Mexborough, who heard about the feat and decided to join in and have his legs waxed.
David’s efforts are being supported by the Balby West Tenants’ and Residents’ Association (TARA), of which he is a member. All TARAs are supported by St Leger Homes of Doncaster – the organisation that manages around 21,000 homes for the council.
Wife Tegan (27), explained: ‘David thought he may do a sky dive but discovered he was too heavy so he decided to go for the full body wax instead – he’s a brave man. He’s so hairy – it will hurt!
‘When baby David was born he was not much bigger than my hand. My husband is doing this to say thank you from the family.’
David, of Balby, who works for Metro Clean, has already collected more than £100 and family, friends, work colleagues and neighbours have pledged a further £300.
Linda Hall, secretary of the Balby West TARA, said: ‘David came up with this idea. He’s doing really well with sponsorship. The TARA will also be supporting him by putting on a coffee morning on August 18 between 9am and 10.45am at The Maureen Edgar Centre, Balby. Every year we donate money from one of our coffee mornings to charity and this year it will be the neo-natal unit.’
David will undergo the waxing also at The Maureen Edgar Centre, Sandycroft Crescent, on August 21 and will be supported by Tegan and their two children Alexis (7) and Harrison (5).
Anyone wanting to sponsor David should email Tegan on email@example.com
