Christmas Stockings 2020
Published 30th December 2020
Now we can be sure that the stockings we supplied this year have reached their intended recipients on TMBU and PRH SCBU, we wanted to share some photos of them with you. Our Committee members Jenni and Kirsten did an amazing job of organising and delivering a total of 40 Mums’ stockings, 40 Dads’ stockings, and 40 baby stockings plus enough for siblings of babies on the units. Quite a feat and they look wonderful! Also thank you to our committee member Charlotte’s Dad for helping with the wrapping.
The stockings have been very well received on the units. Claire Hunt, TMBU Matron said, ‘The stockings and gifts were amazing and well appreciated. There were many (happy) tears on the unit and lots of thanks. You have all done great things again this year!’.
Sarah and Nick, parents of baby Lila currently on PRH SCBU said, ‘Having our newborn baby in SCBU over Christmas was hard but it was so lovely to see Lila surrounded by presents when we arrived in the morning! The gifts were so thoughtful and we all felt totally spoilt. It was really magical getting a card from Lila too. Thank you so much EBA.’
Thanks to everyone who helped with this and donated to our ‘Spreading Christmas Cheer’ Justgiving Campaign. We raised a fantastic £650 towards funding the stockings and gifts. A big thank you to the Smith family, Rishma and Paul for their fundraising for the stockings again this year too. Also a thank you again to Sainsburys, Happy Planet Gifts and Smyths Toy Superstores for their amazing contributions to this years stockings.
