Lots of our families fundraise for us with a variety of events and ideas. We are very grateful for every penny that they raise.  You can read many of the events and stories that have taken place here; and below is our latest story:

Some Visitors

We had some visitors who had stayed in the House 10 years ago.

Julie Simmonds spent 6 months in the House when Bo was born weighing just over 700 grams. Her mum and dad, Elaine and John, also stayed when dad, Mark went back to work.

They try and visit us every year with Bo and bring a fundraising donation for the House. This year they brought a fantastic £300: Elaine had spent a lot of time knitting stockings before Christmas and she sold them in aid of the House.

Her other daughter, Jennie who runs a hair salon with Fran called

The Little Hair House

displayed the stockings in the salon and asked customers to pay £1.50. Elaine (and Bo) are now knitting lots of chickens to sell at Easter!

Thank you from us all.
