Baby Beat Appeal

The Baby Beat Appeal provides funding for the Sharoe Green Maternity Unit to ensure babies born within our community have the very best monitoring equipment during pregnancy and delivery. We also support research into stillbirths and premature labour in addition to bereavement support.

Charity Registration No. 1051194


Louise Day and the ladies of Preston Sling Group are organising a sponsored walk in aid of The BABY BEAT APPEAL - but with a twist!

During our sponsored walk, we will be braving the Preston elements whilst carrying our babies in a variety of baby slings and carriers, whilst our older children will be toddling alongside!

The walk will take place during National 'Baby-Wearing' Week, celebrating the advantages of carrying our babies close and aims to raise funds for the Sharoe Green Maternity Unit charity.

Many of us gave birth in this unit and many of us had to take advantage of the specialist care and equipment there. We would like to give something back to the unit that cared for us and our newborn babies.

The 2.5 mile journey will take us from Riverbank Childrens Centre in Ashton, past Preston Train Station and up through the City Centre along Fishergate. We will head through Avenham Park, resting and feeding our little ones at the pavillion cafe before we head back to the centre.  If you are interested, you are most welcome to join us! If not, we hope that you can help by sponsoring us and helping raise money for this most worthy local charity.
