Neonatal fundraiser in Formby raises over £500

On Sunday 2nd October a Baby, Toddler and Children's Event was held at The Gild Hall Activity Centre in Formby to support and raise funds for medical equipment for Ormskirk Hospital Neonatal Unit.

Theo was born 10 weeks premature back in October 2012 and spent the next 10 weeks on the fantastic Neonatal Unit fighting for his life, including having his 1st Christmas there. Emma and her family wanted to give back to the unit in order to help other babies and their families in a similar situation. This year we are raising funds towards incubators costing approximately £20,000 each and monitors costing approximately £7,000 each, the unit needing 12 of each.

The Children's Event was attended extremely well even had a queue at the gate of keen shoppers wanting to be the first to grab their bargains. We had stalls selling new and pre-loved Children's items, a Mini Golf company set up in the glorious sunshine on the field at the side, Starkidz Entertainment came with Peppa Pig and Chase from Paw Patrol to see all the lovely children and even having a go at mini golf too. There was hook a duck, a tombola, name the teddy, a raffle with great prizes on offer, Face painting by the fantastic Fancy Faces Southport, Trivisco Ice Cream Van came along and there was also refreshments on offer.

We would like to thank all the sellers for bringing their lovely items. Thank you to all the local businesses for donating either raffle prizes or refreshments, to our wonderful team of helpers, who without them we couldn't run these events, and to our buyers because without you we wouldn't be able to raise funds. We raised a brilliant amount of £567.82 for the Neonatal Unit so, thank you so much.

Our next event is a Family Christmas Shopping Evening on Friday 25th November at St Jerome's Parish Club, Greenloons Drive, Formby L37 2LX. This event is on 5.30pm till 9.30pm.
