Last night saw a wee trip through to St John's Hospital in Livingstone to deliver a cheque to the Special Care Baby Unit to help with the purchase of items for Baby Diaries. These Baby Diaries are written by the unit staff from the baby's perspective. This allows the parents to be more involved knowing what has happened at the times they haven't been able to be there. It is such a lovely thing to do and a lovely keepsake for the family. Funds will be used to purchase an instant camera and printer. This instant camera will help parents and family members by allowing them to take photos away with them and also for the SCBU staff to use in the diaries.
Many Thanks to Lindsey for arranging.
