After our son Harris was born prematurely at 32 weeks pregnant in August 2011, he needed to stay in Darent Valley hospital in Dartford for the first 3 weeks of his life. Due to the remarkable care they gave to our son, and peace of mind they gave to myself and my fiancé Michael, We are trying to raise funds for the hospital special care baby unit (SCBU) and for the charity fund that supports the unit, Little Buds. It can cost £800 per day to look after one baby in SCBU so we are aiming to raise £16,800 over the next two years, through a variety of events, as this is how much it could have cost to look after our son.
Thank you so much for your support and any donations you could make, I am extremely grateful for any amount, great or small, it is all going to a very worthy cause.
One of the events we are organising is a walk from Bexleyheath Shopping Centre to Darent Valley Hospital around Harris' 1st birthday in August so please dig deep and sponsor us as much as you can!
We are also taking part in a 10k London run on the 8th of July 2012, as well as a London to Brighton Cycle on 16th September 2012, and seeing as we are both very unfit, Michael and I need as much support as we can get!!
Also, instead of birthday presents or cards, i'm having a fundraising party on the 15th April 2012 to raise as much money as possible to support Little buds!
We are having summer fetes, raffles, quiz nights, games nights, and various other fundraising events for Little buds throughout the year, all with the help of our wonderful friends and families, especially Debbie and Paul Crawford, and their little boy Zachary, another beautiful 'Little Bud'!
