It is traditional to mark the occasion of my barmitzvah by raising money for a charity that means something to me. I was born at the University College London Hospital and was put into the special neonatal care unit when I was a day old. My mum and dad told me how totally amazing these people were and I would like to raise to money to help UCLH Neonatal as much possible. They look after sick and premature babies and ask for no thanks. Although the NHS funds this hospital, there are so many things that they cannot afford and I would really like to help them and thank them for looking after me when I was a baby.
I have decided to walk the 9 miles from my house in Barnet to the Neonatal hospital in Euston to raise sponsorship and will walk half the way with my mum and half with my dad.
Please help me raise money - I would be so grateful but the Neonatal hospital would be even MORE grateful.
Thanks in advance - Dylan!! xxx
