News for July and August 2011

Fundraising for the new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Leighton Hospital - the One in Eleven Appeal

July 2011

We're off to a good start with little badges we've had made depicting our little bear with NICU in individual letters on his balloons. This is the logo which you can see on the floor on the entrance to the existing neonatal ward and also on the floor of the parents' sitting room. These little badges are £1.00 each and are available on our stall, on the neonatal unit, from Bridge Farm Nurseries and various other places. If you would like one, you can phone me on 01270 582187.

My 7 year old grandson Jack Parton did his very first triathlon on July 2nd, sponsored for us. He raised a brilliant £200. Very well done Jack, we are all so proud of you. His dad Jon is already experienced in triathlons and it looks as if Jack may well be joining him.

Jen Poulton and Nicola Marshall, the two mums who raised money last year towards the cold cot we bought for the labour ward, have this year joined forces once again with some wonderful workers from Barclays bank. They held another garden party this year, again at the home of Mr and Mrs Poulton in Sandbach. Much work and effort was put into it and a great deal of support from local people and also the Latter Day Saints. We would like to give out heartfelt thanks to all of you.

Today we have banked £1,867.50!

£1,648. 50 was raised by the Garden Party (and this is promised to be match funded by Barcleys Bank)
£120.00 was raised by Ben from the Marathon
£99.00 was from a Teddy Bears Picnic from Phoebe's play school.

Tremendous thanks to all of you concerned.

More things are in the pipe line and we hope with this blog that you will join us with this very exciting venture.
