Chester Childbirth Appeal
Set up in 1991, Registered with the Charity Commissioners No. 1003772, to support pregnant women, their babies and children receiving treatment at the Countess of Chester Hospital. We have raised over £1M and improved the environment of the hospital enormously over the last 19 years, providing ensuite accommodation for parents of premature babies, an adolescent unit with its specialised accommodation for youngsters aged 10 to 18 years, a bereavement suite and a Comfort Zone providing shop, cafe and childrens play area for patients and their visitors, to enable them to relax and meet away from the clinical areas. We have provided many other amenities also.
We are currently working to raise funds to provide a newly refurbished outdoor play area for the children being nursed on the Childrens Wards at the Countess Chester Hospital.
We think that it is very important that children in hospital, sometimes for weeks have somewhere to play.
We have an estimate of £50,000.00: and so far we have raised half of this. Please help us to provide this much needed facility. We would appreciate any contribution however small. All donations will be gratefully acknowledged.
