A massive thank you to everyone at Beard Construction Guildford office for raising money for BURPS as one of their 3 nominated charities of the year for 2017 to celebrate their 125th birthday. They raised an amazing £6,115.98 for BURPS through golf days, bake sales, dress down days etc which was then matched by Beard to make a total of £12,231.96!!

We have had the money through this week, and it will go towards much needed new equipment for the Neonatal Unit including new furniture for the parents’ living room, new nursing chairs, a 2nd twin cot, new mattresses for the parents’ bedrooms, and training courses for the doctors and nurses. (Photos to follow once the equipment is purchased.)

Thank you also to Balazs Ferenczi for nominating BURPS to his employer following his daughter’s stay on the Unit.

Well done and thank you to Esther Owers and all the guys at Bidfood UK Slough BSC for raising £340 for BURPS today.

Thank you so much to Sam Mawdsley for organising "Afternoon Tea" and raising an amazing £1,100 for the Unit!

BURPS have bought 500 "Little Victories" sticker progress charts so that each baby on the Unit can track their progress and take home as a keepsake. Stickers include 'I'm off IV fluids', '2 hourly feeds', 'finished antibiotics', 'I am being tried off the ventilator', '1st bath', 'I'm coming home'.  


                                                                                                                                                                                          

17th January 2018

Help needed!

It can be lonely and difficult for parents once their babies have been discharged from the Unit, and one of BURPS' functions is to provide support to such parents. The BURPS committee would like to organise an Easter event (egg hunt or party) for any parents of babies who have been on the Unit and would like to meet with other parents and BURPS members for support and chat (and fun!). This would be a free event funded by BURPS which would be advertised on FaceBook.

However, we are a very small committee and don't have the time to organise such an event ourselves.

If there is anyone who would like to get involved in organising an Easter event, then please get in touch by sending us a message through our FaceBook page or website.

Date for your diary - our next meeting is on Monday 15th January from 7.30pm on the Unit. New members always welcome!
