A SOMERSET couple’s charity set up in memory of their son has been so successful fundraising they have managed to donate five children’s monitors to Taunton’s Musgrove Park Hospital.

Paul Stevens, who works at Hinkley B, and his wife Donna, started Elliot’s Touch after their son Elliot passed away at 13 months after being diagnosied cardiomyopathy and mitochondria disease.

The couple joined staff to present the five new monitors which cost £2,000 each.

Donna Stevens said: “It was a very emotional morning as it was the first time we’ve been back to this ward since Elliots Dilated Cardiomyopathy was diagnosed which was the start of his struggle to live and the onset of our traumatic journey.

"We were so glad to see how happy the staff were to have these vital machines and them tell us how important they are to they’re not only everyday duties but for the lives they will help.

"Elliot is now like a Guardian Angel in the children’s unit to all the poorly children.

"We would like to thank Active Signs for doing such a great job of the plaques and to absolutely everyone one that’s helped us raise the money for these very useful machines."
