LICHFIELD LADIES CONTINUE TO SUPPORT BIRMINGHAM NEONATAL UNIT
Members of Lichfield Ladies Circle put their packing skills into action to raise funds to provide more baby journals for the Neonatal unit at the Birmingham Women’s Hospital.
Last year Lichfield Ladies Circle provided 250 baby journals to the Neonatal unit. The baby journals are placed in a journey box and given as a gift to parents of babies admitted to the unit, who are usually born prematurely, and provides comfort during and after their baby’s stay. The hospital frequently looks after babies from Lichfield who require this level of intensive care. The Chair of Lichfield Ladies Circle, Clare Ellett, was delighted to present 300 more journals to Clare Raiman from Birmingham Women’s Hospital this May.
The money for the new baby journals was raised by members of the Lichfield Ladies Circle packing shopping bags for customers at the B&M Store in Lichfield. The ladies were overwhelmed at the generosity of the customers. The money raised, along with a donation from Lichfield Ladies Tangles, enabled 300 more journals to be produced.
