Our Lister Neonatal Big Build Appeal has reached its fundraising target!

The appeal, which we launched in August 2018, has raised more than £350,000 to extend the very small families room on the unit.

This bigger space will be a home from home for parents, offering the facilities they want while their babies are receiving the extra care and support they need.

The original idea for the extension came from the Lister Neonatal Unit Families Group, a dedicated parent support group which works hand-in-hand with the East and North Hertfordshire Hospitals' Charity to raise funds.

Features of the new families room include:

  • Cooking facilities so families do not have to leave the unit.
  • Specialist recliner chairs allowing families to rest in comfort.
  • Accessible gardens providing a moment of relaxation.
  • A designated area for siblings to play, making visits more enjoyable for young brothers and sisters.
  • Showering facilities for partners of new mothers in maternity and on the neonatal unit.

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has donated to this appeal and helped us reach our target.

Fundraising continues!
