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 just want to support us. In the past people have done many different things to raise money and had great fun at the same time.
Sponsored events have included silences, hair shaving, walks, cycle rides, marathons, triathlons, parachute jumps, diets, cake sales, coffee mornings, car boot sales, charity balls, football or rugby matches, fun days and fetes, non school uniform days and dress down days at work. Of course, these are just a few examples of what people have done in the past. You can be as creative and fun in raising money as you please.
In terms of targets for common equipment, Scoo-B-Doo buys smaller items from £15 for small gifts for mums to help 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. So 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.
