Fundraising Friday! Brighton Rotary Club grant of £2250 to fund 6 months of VCreate
Published 14th January 2022
Fundraising Friday! 😃
In December 2021, we were delighted to hear that our bid to the Brighton & Hove Soiree Rotary Club for funding vCreate was successful. The Rotary Club grant of £2250 allows us to fund a further 6 months of VCreate to support local families with babies needing the specialist care provided in the Trevor Mann Baby Unit at the RSCH.
These families can spend anything from a few days to 6+ months on the units with their premature or very poorly babies. vCreate is a tool that allows families to stay connected, especially as the hospital still has restricted visiting access. vCreate allows families to see photos and video clips of their child when they cannot be there with them.
Brighton and Hove Soiree Rotary Club Member, Brenda Griffiths, who sponsored the bid on behalf of the EBA said ” The Trevor Mann Baby Unit has been held in high regard by past and present members of the Soiree Rotary Club, some of whom have seen at first hand the essential specialist care offered to families. In these particularly challenging times of the Pandemic, we are pleased to be able to help parents stay connected with their babies at such a crucial time”.
Thank you so much to Brenda and the members of the Rotary Club for supporting our bid and helping to fund this essential service for families. 💛
