Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

=======================================================================

UPDATE: 04/06/2010: Well we did it! Maybe not quite in 24 hours, but 29 hours is still a remarkable achievement, especially when we had illness, injuries and the police dealing with the gunman in Cumbria to contend with! Please keep donating, we've done the walking now and we are aching loads, but the children still need this ventilator and they still need your support. A big huge THANK YOU to all who have supported us so far, without your encouragement this wouldn't have been possible.

So if you're reading this now and haven't donated, what is stopping you from hitting the "DONATE NOW" button? Complete strangers have come on here and donated!! £5 is not a lot of money to most people so please please please, if you can, donate £5 or anything you wish. We are a specialist unit and the sick kids who come to us need this ventilator, so please donate what you can. THANK YOU!

UPDATE: 05/05/2010: Four weeks to go and we're all very excited! Lisa has managed both Scafell Pike and Snowdon, Natalie and Andy U have done Snowdon and Noleen has also done Scafell Pike... and we all managed it in the recommended times for a 24 hour challenge... woop woop! Thank you so much to all who have donated to us so far, it is truly appreciated, thank you! =D

Six nurses from the Children's Accident & Emergency department at St. Peter's Hospital, , along with family and friends, are aiming to complete the Three Peaks Challenge within 24 hours! We are starting on 1st June 2010 and should finish on the 2nd June 2010.

Our Children's A&E provides a 24 hours a day, 365 days a year service. It is run by trained children's nurses. We see approximately 28,000 children a year aged 0 - 17 years, who come to us with a variety of medical and physical complaints. These can range from minor ailments and injuries through to those who have suffered major trauma or very sick babies and children (eg: meningitis/septicaemia).

Our aim is to raise as much money as we can for the Children's A&E department. We would like to purchase a ventilator that can be used for babies and children.  At the moment we do not have a ventilator of our own and we have to borrow ventilators from other departments when we need to support a critically ill or injured baby/child with their breathing. This type of equipment is expensive (£10,000+) but is essential for saving lives. We would also like to redecorate the department for the children. Your donations will be greatly appreciated.

The charity we have chosen covers the children's departments within the hospital, so all donations from this page will come to the Children's A&E and not the Neonatal Unit, although if you would like to donate to St. Peter's NICU, we are sure there are events happening to raise money for them within the local area, as well as on Justgiving.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - We raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now. Thank you very much!

 

About the charity

Previously called the Early Births Fund, the fund was set up in 2003 with the aim of raising £250,000 to provide additional intensive care cots for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. This goal was achieved in 2 short years. The fund has continued on to support babies, families & staff on the NICU.
