A fundraising mum from Otley has had the name and logo of her favourite charity tattooed on to her arms.

Mel Metcalfe chose Mother’s Day to have the symbols for Bliss indelibly marked on her.

Mel, 35, has needed the help of the premature and sick baby charity and experienced at first hand how vital it is.

She said: “We have three beautiful girls but over the years we have miscarried six single pregnancies, three sets of twins and had a beautiful son, Elliot, born sleeping.

“The help Bliss give to families with sick and premature babies is invaluable and if we can do anything to help and support them we will.”

Mel has previously done a bungee jump and covered her home with thousands of Christmas lights.
