The Babygrow Appeal had an appeal target to raise £2.4 million to create a new neonatal unit that will provide a modern and spacious environment for the babies, their parents and their families to receive excellent care.
The very good news is we expect to reach the fantastic total of £2.4 million by January 2018.
This is due to the amazing and very generous support we have has from the local community, corporates, trusts and individuals who have run, sung, jumped, danced and eaten their way to this total.
We thank you all for your support.
The Babygrow project group is meeting regularly and has commenced work on a final brief for the architects based on what is needed now. A lot has changed since the original plans were drawn up 6 years ago.
By supporting the Babygrow Appeal you have ensured that when the joy of a new baby is replaced with the fear for survival- the babies, their parents and families have the very best facilities as they embark on their rollercoaster journey of care that can take months to reach a happy ending.
Watch this space for further news.
We will still continue to accept donations for the appeal until the building is completed but we will not actively be fundraising.
