Accountants raise money for newborns at Good Hope
Boston Bailey Group, an accountancy firm in Birmingham, chose Good Hope Hospital Charity as their charity partner and chose to fundraise for the Newborns in Need appeal.
Every year Good Hope Hospital cares for thousands of babies who are born up to four months prematurely and can weigh as little as one pound and one in ten newborn babies need the help of a neonatal unit. The unit provides 24 hour care using dedicated breathing machines, incubators and state of the art monitoring machines.
The Charity aims to provide mothers and families with the ‘added extras’ that they need to ensure that their stay on the ward is as comfortable as possible by providing soft furnishings such as comfortable feeding chairs.
Anne Clarke, from Boston Bailey Group, said: “We heard all about the Special Care Baby Unit at Good Hope Hospital from my daughter who works there. We all wanted to help raise money for the unit and all of the babies who are treated on it.
“We did a scavenger hunt around the Jewellery Quarter and everyone loved it!”
The group raised a huge £1830 for the unit which will go towards providing lots of added extras for the patients, staff and families on the ward that goes over and above what the NHS can fund.
Laura Power, Fundraising Manager for Good Hope Hospital Charity, said: “A huge thank you goes to everyone at Boston Bailey Group who took part in the scavenger hunt and raised such an amazing amount of money for the Special Care Baby Unit!”
