Two Years
Published September 27, 2022

Happy Birthday to Us! We have been on an incredible journey fundraising for the Neonatal unit for the last two years.  Over the last year, we have held some fantastic events like our Easter quiz and 5k Family Fun Day. We are still so lucky to have the incredible support of other Neonatal parents and supporters like Reece who was the main organiser of the family fun day and our upcoming Christmas event and Tom who completed Colchester Stampeded 10K.

It has been an absolute rollercoaster being a part of something so special and meeting incredible families along the way.  We are hugely thankful to everyone who raises funds or supports us at any of our events each year. Every bit of money raised goes to the unit, staff and to help families in any way possible.  We are so excited as we move into year 3 of Wish Upon a Fairy, and we hope you stick around to be a part of it.

We have also been very lucky to be chosen as Lamb&Co charity of the year, they have kindly agreed to donate money from every house sale and the team has organised and taken part in some amazing events this year, like quizzes and marathons.

During our second year, we have been able to grant wishes for the unit from delivering TVs for the bedrooms to delivering Easter eggs and Christmas decorations and gifts and we are currently working with the hospital Charity team to grant some more wishes. It is with absolute pride and joy to announce in our second year we have raised a grand total of £14,021.48!

If you’d like to fundraise for us, there are plenty of ways to get involved whether that is a large event like a family fun day or something as an individual like a tough mudder or sponsored walk. We are always happy to help with planning and advertising on social media,  if you have any ideas please contact us via email, Facebook or Instagram.
