THE BIRTH and Babies appeal for Warwick Hospital has reached its first milestone.
The appeal to launch £200,000 was launched in April and since then supporters have raised £20,000 towards the target.
The funds will pay for added comforts at Warwick Hospital’s new Maternity Led Unit.
Fund-raisers plan to continue their hard work, with a Winter Wonderland Ball just one of the upcoming events.
Catering company ‘Top Nosh’ is hosting the ball at Leamington Town Hall on Saturday December 9. It will include entertainment, a three-course meal, drinks and a raffle.
Company owner Jenny Harding said: “Having had 2 babies at Warwick in the last 4 years, I felt this was a great opportunity to give something back.
“The Winter Wonderland Ball is going to be a fantastic evening; we have already received great support in making it a night to remember for guests.”
With the unit due to open next year, South Warwickshire Foundation Trust director of development Jayne Blacklay is urging people to continue supporting the appeal.
She said: “We have been overwhelmed with the support for the new midwife led birthing unit so far. The community has come together to make it the best it can be and events like the ball will help us to do that.
“We have had a fantastic response since launching the appeal, but I would like to encourage more people to get involved and help in any way you can.”
Tickets to the ball cost £55 per person or £400 for a table of eight.
