LITTLE TED'S APPEAL UPDATE

For those of you who are not aware of the Little Ted's Appeal, this was set up in memory of a special little baby boy called Thomas Edward Davis (TED), who was sadly born sleeping in March of this year. 


His Father Spencer Davis asked if he could raise funds in order to soundproof two of the rooms on the delivery suite in order to minimise noise transfer.  Spencer and his partner Rachael could hear the cries of new born babies and other Mothers giving birth during and following losing their precious Son Thomas which added and impounded their grief and devastation.  Baby Beat were more than happy to support this and so, the 'Little Ted's Appeal' was launched.  Spencer got to work and started organising fundraisers in order to raise the funds - £25,000  which would enable the work to take place and steamed ahead raising this in less then 6 months time!  Testament to his drive and determination in memory of his Son Thomas. 


Before work could commence, we were overwhelmed by the companies who were scheduled to undertake the work - D&G Builders, Frank Whittle Partnership, Ameon and B&Q who offered the necessary materials and labour free of charge. To say we were totally blown away by this kind generosity is an understatement!!  Each of the companies involved felt moved by Spencer’s story and wanted to help.  Work commenced on 2nd November on the two rooms (one being the room that Spencer and Rachael were in) and they are due for completion on 7/12/15. 


It was decided and welcomed by the Head of Midwifery to continue the good work and soundproof all of the rooms on the Unit - 12 rooms in total.  The funds that Spencer has raised originally will allow work on two more rooms and phase 2 will commence shortly after Christmas.  We need to be ever mindful that the Delivery Suite is very much a working environment with babies being born there daily and so the work will need to be carried out in phases - two rooms at a time, 6 phases in total.


With 4 rooms under our belt financially we require a further £70,000 to ensure all of the rooms are completed and desperately need the support of our local community to make this happen.  We are blessed with many organisations and individuals who have got behind this truly emotive appeal which enabled the first two phases to take shape.   To allow phases 3 – 12 to commence we need all the help we can get and if you or your company / colleagues / friends / family can help us reach our goal we would be truly truly grateful.
