Scoo-B-Doo is funded by people just like you. If you want to get more hands on, there’s a huge variety of fun ways to bring to people together and raise much needed funds. From £15 for equipment to help a new mum with infant feeding, to £20,000 for incubators and ventilators, it all helps.

Raising money for Scoo-B-Doo

You can plan something just for you or involve your school classmates, family members, friends, work colleagues, sports team or businesses. You may have had a baby on the Neonatal Unit, know someone who has or maybe you just want to make difference by supporting us.

In terms of targets for common equipment, Scoo-B-Doo buys smaller items from £15 to help mums with infant feeding, stethoscopes for £70, breast pumps for £1200, intravenous pumps for £4000, monitoring equipment costing around £9000, all the way up to £20,000 for incubators and ventilators.

Every effort made to support the ward, no matter the size, will greatly help. We always have a ‘wish list’ on the go so feel free to contact us and ask about what’s currently needed.
