Tiny Hearts Appeal Barnsley Hospital

The Tiny Heart appeal was launched in September 2014 and aims to raise £1million over the next two years to help support the development of a brand new Special Care Baby Unit. The new unit aims to provide an even better standard of care for all the special care babies and the most comfortable environment for all families and staff on the unit.

The new unit will be built around the needs of the babies and their families. State-of-the-art equipment will be provided to enable the Special Care Baby Unit team to continue their fantastic care and enhance their capabilities. The unit will sit on the same level as the Barnsley Birthing Centre, which means that the babies will not have to be exposed to different environments and different temperature changes, nor will they have to be taken into an elevator.

All money raised for the Tiny Hearts Appeal will be used to buy essential equipment such as intensive care units for babies that need that extra help with breathing, keeping warm or feeding, double beds and homely furniture for families who need to stay at the hospital, and the best infant resuscitator equipment.

The Tiny Hearts Appeal ask that you pay your own booking fee of £100 to secure your space on the 3 June 2015 and then to pay the balance of your jump using fundraising you will need to raise a minimum of £500 sponsorship – reaching this target about a month before your jump.  You can of course pay for your own jump and then you can raise as much money as you can without any pressure of a target if you prefer.

The Tiny Hearts Appeal recommend that you use Just Giving to raise your money.  It is easy to use and as long as you hit your online fund-raising target of £500 the balance cost of your jump can be paid from that money. Setting up a page using Just Giving is easier than you think!  Follow the onscreen directions slowly and carefully, it is easy for you and for those wishing to donate on your behalf.  Do use the tools on Just Giving to easily set up email signatures, post on social media sites and  send emails to people listed in your address book.

Book your jump and start fundraising now!
