Cambridge Construction Company Raises £4,000 for Rosie Hospital

February 17 2016

Generous staff of the Cambridge based Kershaw Group Limited have chosen The Rosie Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit – which provides specialist intensive and surgical care to the most critically ill new born babies from all over the region – to receive the proceeds from their annual fundraising activity this year.

A grand total of £4,000.00 was raised by the Group’s staff who enjoyed a Scottish themed lunch, complete with Bagpipe Player, bought hundreds of raffle tickets and also took part in an auction.

A baby being born prematurely, its mother having a difficult delivery or antenatal concerns are all reasons an infant might be admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) which is specially designed and equipped to care for the sickest and most vulnerable babies.  Peggy Burch, who organises Kershaw’s fundraising said “It’s always very stressful when a baby is unexpectedly admitted to the NICU but the doctors, nurses and other caregivers are there to attend to the infant’s medical needs, using state-of-the-art neonatal equipment, as well as providing emotional support for the families.”

Di Sanderson, Matron of Neonatal and Paediatric Intensive Care at Addenbrooke’s and the Rosie hospitals explained “Any money raised for the unit is really appreciated and allows us to provide the extra things for our small infants on their journey with us.”
