On 18 November 2022 the neonatal unit received 24 care packs from the volunteer team at Bloodbikes. The Bloodbikes charity transports donor breast milk around a number of hospitals in the South West, and they had received a selection of donated items for new mothers who had an unexpected stay in hospital following a premature birth, including toiletries, hotel style slippers, hairbrush. The boxes were put together with input from Sir Chris Hoy’s wife Sarra following her premature birth.
Bloodbikes distributed these to several hospitals in the South West as well as Stoke Mandeville. Thank you very much!
