We raise money to transform the lives of sick babies


In November 2016 my wife gave birth to twin boys, 7 and a half weeks early. At 16 weeks into the pregnancy the twins had to be operated on in the womb to save them from a life threatening disease called twin to twin transfusion syndrome. Once they were born, James spent 4 weeks in hospital till he was fit and healthy enough to come home. Charlie who was the donor twin was not so lucky, he had to have major surgery to repair a perforated bowel which kept him in hospital for 8 weeks. Cots for tots provided accommodation for my wife during the boys stay in hospital so she could be close to them. I am raising money to help cots for tots continue their support for other parents with children in the neonatal unit. They also help raise money for vital equipment and     research for children's and st michaels hospital.
