National Friendly Fundraising Hub

Supporting Southmead Hospital Charity

In 2019, National Friendly has pledged to support Southmead Hospital Charity’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Fund.

Southmead Hospital Charity raises money to support the work of Southmead Hospital, Cossham Hospital and other community health services in the Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset areas. Working alongside staff and patients, the Charity fundraises for projects which are beyond the remit of the NHS but which have a huge impact on the lives of patients.

The Charity was selected for support following a nomination from Louise Webber, one of the Sales Support Administrators at National Friendly.

“My son Cameron, was born weighing 1lb1Oz and my second son Brandon, was born weighing 3lb 9oz. NICU treated me like a queen, both times I was there with my sons.  They supported me through the unfortunate loss of my first son and spent two months looking after my second son. I visit the unit every year on Cameron’s birthday and spend time in the room dedicated to parents like me. Each year, I look through the books and it’s amazing to see over the years how the loss of babies has declined. I know that this is to do with research/technology being advanced, but also it is due to the charity and the staff for all of the extras that they do to give these babies the very best chance of a start in life.”

Staff and clients can make a direct donation or fundraise through this hub to help National Friendly achieve its fundraising target of £10,000 and help more patients in Bristol and the South West receive the very best possible care locally.
