A father has been raising money for hospital staff who cared for his premature son.

Paul Ackroyd, of Fisher Way, Heckmondwike, wants to give something back to the neo-natal unit at Pinderfields Hospital for the care given to his son Max, who is now five-months-old.

Alan Fowler and Paul, pictured, were among the staff at Yorkshire Bank branches in Batley and Cleckheaton who held a raffle and raised £590 .

Paul will be taking part in a sky dive this week.
