Cots for Tots

Helstonbury donated £1,000 to Cots for Tots (links to http://www.cotsfortots.org.uk) in support of Even Nine’s fundraising for this charity. (Rick Martin with the help of Even Nine have been raising money with their single ‘Snowblind’ to support the special care baby unit at St Michael’s Hospital in Bristol.)

Helstonbury’s generous donation will help fund a number of ongoing programmes at St Michael’s the most needed of which is a new ultrasound scanner to reduce the need to transfer babies to the radiology department. This state of the art equipment will ensure the Intensive Care Unit remains at the forefront of neonatal care. Helstonbury’s donation will also help to support a specialist ambulance service to ensure that the tiny patients are transported quickly and efficiently and with the utmost caution; it will provide music therapy and buy storybooks to soothe a newborn with the sound of its parents’ voices; it will also help to provide home-from-home accommodation to keep families together during critical times.

Kate Jones of The Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity wrote to the Helsonbury committee and said:

“On behalf of all of our young patients and families a huge thank you for all your support.”
