Story

*This is a team page - all team fundraising efforts can be found here*

We are a multi disciplinary team made up of 25 members of staff from the Princess Royal Maternity Hospital in Glasgow. As you would expect, working in a maternity hospital affords us a front row seat at life's highest of highs on a regular basis. However, sadly that means that the lows can be heartbreakingly low. Bereavement is a special and difficult part of our job made easier by charities like SiMBA who provide memory boxes to hospitals around the UK. It is because of them that we can help families make memories such as photos and hand/footprints with their baby that they cherish for a lifetime. We know that the room in which they spend time with their baby making these memories and saying goodbye in is incredibly important and needs to be fit for it's purpose. SiMBA are planning to redesign and refurbish one of our bereavement rooms in our Labour Ward and it's an expensive task. Naturally staff and patients are rallying around to fundraise by various means for such a worthy cause. 

25 of us (made up midwives, HCSW’s and obstetricians) are planning to raise as much money as we can by facing our fears and skydiving from 10,000 feet in St Andrews in February! The power of teamwork is invaluable and we often see this shine through when we are grieving for the bereaved families we care for. We are proud to bring staff from multiple departments & specialities together as one team to achieve this goal and we very much hope that you will consider clicking that donate button! Thank you for all the support!
