The Muddystars help fund Baby Diaries for Milton Keynes University Hospital’s Neonatal Unit.

Posted 09 May Josef Hoccom

 

Last May, Celestra took part in one of the UK’s toughest obstacle course – The Nuclear Races – in aid of the Milton Keynes Hospital Charity. This is the third time The Muddystars – a group of 30 guys and gals – have entered the races for the charity and thanks to the determination of the team £3,535.83 was raised!

Celestra are long standing supporters of Milton Keynes Hospital Charity Neonatal Unit. As a company It’s great to be involved with a service which has directly supported members of our own team here during a vulnerable period. We understand the vital work that this unit does first hand in supporting families and it’s a pleasure to help where we can.

Through the fundraising efforts, new parents on the unit will now receive an Early Babies Parent Handbook, which acts a guide to help gain a better understanding of the unit, We worked alongside the unit team getting everyone involved in the production of these documents from the concept stage all the way through to print and we hope these make a direct difference to the tiniest patients in the hospital and their loved ones.

Alongside the handbook a bespoke Baby Diary which allows families to document their personal journey was also created. The resulting  jungle themed diary includes key milestones such as ‘The first time you held me’ and ‘The first time I came out of the incubator’ as a keepsake for loved ones in years to come. These handbooks are a great resource for parents who often find themselves on the unit unexpectedly and help them stay involved during a potentially difficult period.

As a company we plan to continue to support this charity where we can, and we look forward to raising more funds and getting involved with future projects.

Well done to the Muddystars for all your efforts, job well done!
