A LISBURN mum has raised over 1,000 for the Coronary Care Unit at the Downe Hospital as a thank you after an off duty nurse from the unit came to the aid of her father when he had a heart attack.

Melanie Minshull donned her running shoes and took part in the Lisburn Half Marathon to raise the money.

Her dad had a heart attack at Dundrum car boot sale several months ago and a passing off duty nurse from Downe gave hime CPR until an ambulance arrived and took him to the hospital.

Melanie managed to encourage her husband Donald and daughter Zoe to do the fun run on the same night. Other daughter Hannah missed out as she was away on a school outdoor activity trip to Ardnabannon.
