Thank you for taking the time to visit our PUSH FOR PREMS JustGiving page.
This funding raising page, has been created for everyone who is taking part in this year's Push for Prems sponsored walk!
We are so excited to announce that our 10th Push For Prems is on SUNDAY 23rd JUNE at 11:00am. We can't believe we have been doing Push for Prems for 10 years! We are super excited about this year's sponsored walk! No sign-up is required to do the walk. We will meet outside the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton and walk to Hove Lagoon, where we will have a picnic and this year we will be doing something a little different at the end of the walk - a bubble release in memory of those very precious little ones that sadly didn't make it home.
Each year, we walk for the Early Birth Association (a registered charity that supports the Trevor Mann Baby Unit, RSCH, Brighton and PRH Special Care Baby Unit, Haywards Heath, by providing clothing, nursery items and vital life saving equipment. www.earlybirth.co.uk).
This year, we are delighted to also be supporting Ronald McDonald House - a home from home that is there for parents who are not local to Brighton. The charity provides free accommodation for parents whose little ones are in hospital.
Thank you for all your ongoing support over the years. Together, we have raised over £90,000 for the Early Birth Association, Ronald McDonald House, SERV Sussex (a dedicated team that supply urgent blood and donor milk to hospitals throughout the night) and the Neonatal Ambulance Service.
EVERYONE WELCOME! Anyone can join the walk, the more the merrier :) Please feel free to share this JustGiving page with your friends and families. We would also love it if you could dress up on the day, as it massively helps with the fundraising total. So dig out those wigs, tutus, wacky nurses and doctors outfits and help make the day as colourful and fun as possible. You can also purchase your #pushforprem transfers in the link below.
They are available here:
We also kindly ask that everyone doing the walk, get their sponsors to donate to this page. As we are dividing the money between two charities, it's much easier for admin to track final totals.
We are a tiny group of parents that organise Push for Prems, after spending months in the Trevor Mann Baby Unit, some of us with little ones weighing just a pound. We know what a terrifying experience this is but as prem parents we have seen our little ones defy the odds and show so much strength and determination for life. None of this would be possible without the amazing care provided by our special care baby units and the additional support provided through charitable donations.
It really is an awesome and inspiring sight to see so many children each year and we particularly welcome those that graduated recently :)
Thank you so much for your ongoing support x x
