    Weʼve raised £1,375 to Raise money for SCBU Raigmore Inverness

    Funded on Wednesday, 20th December 2023

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    On the 22nd June 2023 we were woken up with the shock news that my grandson Jude was born at 29 weeks, 10 weeks early, weighing a little 3lb 2oz. When he was born his lungs were not quite ready to work on their own so he was put onto a ventilator to help him along the way. After a long 6 days of just watching their wee boy everyday my daughter Erin & her partner Kevin got told they were allowed a cuddle, the moment they had been waiting for. Not long after their first cuddle one morning when they went into see Jude, he had been taken off his ventilator, another milestone was hit. On 5th July Jude was transferred from the intensive care room into the SCBU nursery, one step closer to the front door then 10 days later he was taken out of his incubator and put into a ‘big boys cot’! Jude was going from strength to strength after all his brain, heart, lung scans and all the other routine tests and after a long 6 weeks spent in hospital, on the 3rd August they got the news they were waiting for, Jude was finally coming home. Jude has been home 3 weeks on 24th August and is now weighing 5lb 15oz and progressing everyday.

    Every single doctor and SCBU nurse that helped Jude were absolutely amazing, they didnt just look after Jude they cared and looked out for my daughter Erin and her partner Kevin when some days seemed that little bit harder. Any donation is truly appreciated and will help these Doctors and nurses to carry on doing the amazing work they do.

    I will be running the River Ness 10K on the 1st October to raise funds for SCBU Raigmore and Jude will be there cheering me on the whole way. Updates at the end of the race will be added to this page.

    Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?
