Warwick Hospital SCBU receives Christmas 'blessing bags' for families
A Kenilworth-based mother of two has raised money for 'blessings bags' for families who will be spending Christmas at Warwick Hospital's Special care baby unit (SCBU).
Jayne Lavelle donated the bags to the SCBU in the lead up to Christmas following her son having to spend time on the unit last year. She felt that other families in a similar situation may appreciate some home comforts and therefore set about gathering donations for the bags.
Local people and companies sponsored the bags, which contain gifts for parents, siblings and the babies themselves. Each bag contains a book for siblings, a pamper gift bag for new mothers and activities for partners.
Upon receiving the donation Katrina Harris, SCBU Ward Manager at South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust, said: "Families will be so grateful for these bags, I am sure that they will brighten parents' days over the festive period at what is often a very difficult time."
