A Gala Ball on Fri 4th March in aid of The Little Lives Appeal to raise funds for the NeoNatal unit for Milton Keynes Hospital.
Information about the Appeal
The Little Lives Appeal is raising £250,000 for Milton Keynes Hospital Neonatal Unit, which needs a full redesign and refurbishment to meet ever-increasing demand. One in ten babies born in and around Milton Keynes needs to use the Unit, and every year 350 premature babies – some as early as 24 weeks old and weighing as little as 500 grams – are admitted.
The Unit is vital to the survival and developmental chances for premature and sick babies, through the intensive, high-dependency and special care it provides. So far the Appeal has raised £147,000, and the Ball will play a huge part in helping achieve the funds needed to carry out the full refurbishment.
