Brownies Raise Over £400 for NICU

1st Hilperton brownies raise over £400 for NICU

The 1st Hilperton Brownies have raised an amazing £466 for our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, to say thank you for saving the lives of their Brown Owl’s premature grand daughters.

Kim O’Loughlin, Brown Owl, is grateful to the Unit for saving Roxy’s and Rae’s lives when they were born prematurely at 26 weeks after their mother, Carly, suffered a brain haemorrhage.  The twins spent 4 months in NICU, whilst Carly fought for her own life in our Intensive care unit.

“My daughter Carly suffered a brain haemorrhage and to save her life, and those of her unborn twins, it was decided that the babies had to be delivered.  Within 3 hours of ringing for the ambulance, I had two new grand-daughers!” explains Kim.

Eleven months later and the twins are happy and healthy, and mum Carly is on the road to recovery. 

“We really wanted to give something back to Southmead’s NICU and our Brownie pack have been brilliant at fundraising!” adds Kim.

“We held a sing-a-thon, cake sale and other stalls and managed to raise money for both Southmead and Bath’s hospital where the twins were also treated.”

Thank you to everyone at the 1st Hilperton pack for all of their support.
