Family Room Campaign

Lola Commons Fund for SiMBA

 Join us in our Family Room Campaign, Lola Commons Fund for SiMBA

The Lola Commons Fund for SiMBA provides funding for Family Rooms within hospitals to offer parents the opportunity to spend as much time with their baby in a peaceful, private and homely setting.  Lesley Jackson, midwife from QEUH explains the benefits of the Family Rooms, “The difference the refurbished family rooms will make to our families simply cannot be put into words. Our families now have a calm, comfortable space away from the clinical environment to spend precious time with their babies at this most difficult time.”

Lisa Hague, Ambassador for SiMBA and founder of the Lola Commons Fund for SiMBA, is extremely passionate about the Family Rooms after the death of her first daughter Lola as Lisa, and fiancé Kris, did not see or hold her and something they very much regret to this day, “I am passionate about empowering parents to talk about their babies, and not to be scared to make the most of the time that they have together and ensuring that more of these Family Rooms exist.”

This campaign will be ongoing, it will raise funds for the next family room project, then the following room, it will be ongoing, so we can achieve a tranquil room in each hospital where parents and their families can spend time with their baby making the most precious of memories.

As we proceed we will let you know our target for each room and the progress of that project, but at any time you will know together we are working towards a very worthwhile project.

The projects can vary in costs and budgets have to be agreed with the SiMBA team, the hospital and the organisations that we work with, so in order for it to be a success we need a strong team behind the work as Sara Fitzsimmons, Director of SiMBA explains, “Working with a strong team is vital to the success of any project, every member of the team pulled together knowing how vitally important rooms such as these can be.  The difference that Family Rooms can make to a parents experience within the hospital is incredible, allowing precious time together that isn’t rushed.”

SiMBA would like all hospitals to have a Family Room especially after evidence showing they clearly benefit the families during what will be one of the most difficult times of their lives and we need your help in order for this to happen.

You can join in this campaign by either making a donation, any amount will help, share with family and friends too. You can as an individual or a group join an organised event to raise sponsorship funds or you could organise a fundraising event yourself.

Each donation will be shown on the page if you choose. Each event we will update on this page, it's about everyone being involved in this campaign.

If you are joining an organised event or wanting to organise an event yourself please contact Danielle at fundraising@simbacharity.org.uk or phone 01368 860141 (Mon – Fri, 9am-5pm).
