Story

Me and my little family are looking to raise some money for our local hospitals special care baby unit in Margate.
Our baby Joseph was born on the 15th June, following a very fast and difficult labour, our baby was born in a very poor condition. Thanks to the absolutely amazing work of the, paediatricians and nurses from scbu, Joseph made a fast recovery. It is very clear that had it not been for all their skills and hard work that night he would not be with us now.
Words can not express how grateful we are to the whole scbu team. Joseph was lucky and was only in scbu for a week, it was the longest most difficult week of our lives both emotionally and physically. Leaving our baby behind in hospital was simply heartbreaking but knowing he was in safe, kind hands made that transition slightly easier.
There are many families and babies using that unit many of whom had been there for weeks and months. Their whole lives are turned upside down. No one expects to have a poorly baby or premature baby
The unit is in desperate need of some tlc. The facilities for the family's are very basic and they are trying to raise money to make it more family friendly with comfy seats a toilet for the mummy's and visitors and toys for the siblings of these babies as they too spend hours in the unit. It has a huge impact on the whole family.
Unfortunately as we all know the NHS has very limited resources and it falls to charity to fund the things that these families desperately need. I have never requested or attempted to raise money for anything before but I think about scbu and those families and babies every single day. An experience like that never leaves you.
I am asking for just teeny amounts so that we can give something back to this amazing resource without whom we would not be where we are today. Am asking just family and friends to help us raise this small amount as a thank you from our family but also every family and baby they help.Thank you love the Chapman's
