Caring staff from Mothercare set themselves an important task before the centre:mk store closed down and they lost their jobs.

They all put money into a pot and used it tp buy up all the remaining premature baby clothing that was in the final sale at the store.

They then donated the dozens of tiny outfits to Milton Keynes charity Emily's Star, which provides neonatal boxes to Milton Keynes hospital.

Little Emily lived for 26 days

Charity founder Kate Elmer has this week thanked the kind-hearted staff, who all lost their jobs when Mothercare went into administration.

Katie founded Emily's Star in 2012 after losing her baby daughter Emily to the genetic disorder Trisomy18 when she was less than a month old.

The charity aims to grant wishes to families who have a child with any life limiting or life threatening illness.

It also provides the neonatal boxes called 'Emily's Gift' for premature or underweight babies.
