Nursery fundraises for Neonatal Unit
Premature babies at Bradford Royal infirmary’s neo-natal unit will benefit thanks to the generosity of staff, children and parents of an Idle nursery.
First Class Child Care raised almost £2,000 by hosting bun sales, dressing up days, a fun day, colouring competitions, sponsored walks, raffles and a children’s concert.
Nursery manager, Sylvia Ralph, said: “This is the second time the nursery have raised money for the neo-natal unit which has become our chosen charity after being nominated by our families.
“Everyone involved in raising money, from staff to children and the mums and dads have put their heart and soul into raising as much money as possible.
“The neo-natal unit does some fabulous work day-in-day-out and some of our children have witnessed at first-hand what miracles are performed there every day. We are just delighted to be able to support the doctors and nurses by giving them this cheque today.”
Clinical services manager, Sarah Szpara, said: “This donation is absolutely fantastic and the unit cannot thank the nursery, children and parents enough for the money that they have raised.
"We're also delighted that the nursery has also chosen to fundraise for us for a third year and it was lovely to see many familiar faces of children we nursed when they were first born when I visited the nursery today.”
The money will be put towards larger pieces of equipment which will benefit the babies in the neo-natal unit.
Over the last two years, First Class Child Care has raised more than £7,000 for the unit.
