To celebrate, the recently launched Periwinkle Appeal is targeting £80,000 to co-fund a significant up-grade of facilities on the Special Care Baby Unit. A refreshed, open and modernized unit will give mothers and babies more privacy and much more space. The improved facilities will also make a major contribution to the way the medical team care for babies and support families.
We are really excited as the fund raising is gaining momentum. In March we received our first donation from Lindfield Primary Academy and the first of our Spring/Summer events took place in April with a Charity Golf Day. We are now planning a BBQ & Summer Dance party. This will be held on Friday 10th of June at 8pm at Mid Sussex Golf Club, Ditchling. It will be an evening of BBQ food and dance music through the decades. We really hope you will be able to join us for some summer fun and dancing to support our local Special Care Baby Unit. For tickets, which cost £25, please contact Vivian on 07725034837.
The Summer finale will be a fundraising walk across the South Downs from the Princess Royal Hospital to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton. This promises a day of talking, walking and scenic views, with plenty of pubs along the way for refreshments. The walk is being planned by a member of the SCBU team, it's approximately 16 miles with a half way option, and will take place on 9 July.
