Baby Bella inspires family to raise £1,500 in Kiltwalk

A Banchory dad, whose three-month old baby daughter, Bella, has spina bifida and hydrocephalus, is part of a team which raised nearly £1,500 for our specialist charity to help other babies with the same condition.

Martin McDonald, along with Bella's aunt and uncle, Anna and Grant, were sponsored to complete the 26-mile walk Aberdeen Kiltwalk from Duthie Park to Portach Green.

Spina Bifida occurs early in pregnancy and Martin’s daughter Bella was born in April with the condition which led to two operations in her first week of life, one to close the hole in her back, and one to fit a medical device to drain fluid which had built up in her brain as a result of Hydrocephalus.
