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.

Story

Please agree to giftaid if donating. We can reclaim an extra 25% from the taxman at no extra cost to you.

On the 17th March 2015, my son, Thomas Edward Davis (TED) was born asleep at Royal Preston Hospital. He was 38 weeks. My partner had to endure a normal delivery which was stressful knowing the inevitable outcome. During the labour and delivery, Rachael could hear the crying of new born babies within the same department.

I am hoping to raise enough money to have soundproofing installed in twelve rooms on the delivery suite at Royal Preston Hospital.

Research into possible causes of stillbirth is ongoing but I hope this renovation work will ease the distress to other mums who find themselves in similar circumstances.

Please donate as much or as little as possible and share with family and friends. Donations can be made via this page or by text message:-

Text TEDS47£5 to 70070 to donate £5. Donations of £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10 can be made by adjusting the amount accordingly.

B&Q (Bamber Bridge, Preston & Chorley) have agreed to donate the materials and I am raising funds for the labour.

The work will not prevent another tragic event from occurring but we hope it will help to minimise a mothers pain and anguish in the future.
