Story

Every year more than 700 sick and premature babies receive specialist, often lifesaving care on the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at St. Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey. With the help of legends like you, over the past 20 years, we have enabled thousands of families to realise their hope of taking their baby home, and have sensitively supported bereaved families whose baby sadly passed away on NICU.

This year Little Roo is celebrating its 20th birthday and we have set a birthday fundraising target of £20,000. We need your help to celebrate 20 years of Little Roo Neonatal Fund, and look forward to another 20 years, and more!

Your donation will support St. Peter's NICU, enabling the best possible outcomes for babies, whilst supporting their families and the staff who care for them.

Together we can make the neonatal journey just a little bit easier for parents and carers of sick and premature babies. This can be a very stressful time and your donation will help families like Andy's. Baby Andy spent 135 days on NICU, his Mum said...

We are grateful for the Little Roo Fund. The support we received from them was priceless. From the parent's quiet area to the snack stand, they were a blessing - the only place where you can eat, cry, pray, have some quiet time away from all the beeping, and meet other parents in the same boat as you, who understand your feelings and worries.

We are very grateful for every donation we receive, big or small, one-off or regular - your generosity makes a massive difference.

Thank you for caring about sick and premature babies, their families and the staff who care for them. You are a #LittleRooLegend!

About the charity

Previously called the Early Births Fund, the fund was set up in 2003 with the aim of raising £250,000 to provide additional intensive care cots for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. This goal was achieved in 2 short years. The fund has continued on to support babies, families & staff on the NICU.
