Our thanks to the ladies at Weybridge WI for raising £4,481 during what has been such a difficult year for everyone. The monies raised are supporting local mum Sam Moore’s plans to provide a new family room in our maternity unit and the Weybridge WI has committed to keep on fundraising until we have what is needed to provide an air conditioning unit.
Sam’s personal experience of having two boys born asleep at 24 weeks and 18 weeks provided the motivation for creating an appropriate space in maternity for families to have the most serious and sensitive conversations. Somewhere families can be given the space and information to make very difficult decisions.
With nearly £15,000 already raised, the hope is that this room will be completed during 2021. To make a donation in support of this project, please click on this link – The Opal Project is fundraising for Kingston Hospital Charity.
