The Lister’s neonatal Big Build appeal has raised £300,000 so far thanks to the generosity of the local community – with only £38,000 left to raise.

The appeal was launched by the East and North Herts Hospitals’ Charity and the Lister Neonatal Unit Families Group in August last year, with the aim of raising enough money for a new neonatal family room at the hospital.

The chair of the Lister Neonatal Families Group, Glyn Doggett, and the other members have all had children cared for at the neonatal unit and know first-hand how a new family room will make a difference.

Speaking about the appeal, Glyn said:

“We are overwhelmed with how quickly we have raised such a huge amount of the money needed and are thrilled to see that we are so close to the target in such a short amount of time, it really is a true reflection of how much love there is out there for the neonatal unit and its incredible staff. We would be delighted if you could donate to the Big Build appeal and help us reach our fundraising target’
