Busy Bees & Busy Bears Childrens Day Nursery - Donation to Neonatal Unit at UHND on 8th October 12.

busy bee logoBusy Bees and Busy Bears Childrens Day Nursery took part in a toddler walk on 18th July 2012.  Staff, children and parents from both settings attended dressed up as super heroes.   The total sum raised from this event was £5,183.30 and was donated to the neonatal unit at UHND.  

This is an annual event and last year the donation was given to Treetops at UHND.  Sue Graham, Director of the Nursery, said: "It was decided this year to donate the money raised to the neonatal unit because it was recommended by one of the parents whose child attends the nursery."


  Heather Byrne, a sister on the neonatal unit, collected the cheque on behalf of the unit at the local nursery, which is situated in Framwellgate Moor. She said: "All the staff feel very honoured that Busy Bees and Busy Bears have decided to donate their sponsor money to the neonatal unit this year.  We have had close links with the nurseries over the years with staff members having used the nursery for their babies." 

The money will go towards replacing essential equipment.    

'In recent times, I have utilised admissions to Richardson for respite direct from my fracture clinic, even at weekends. I have never worked anywhere with this efficiency before - it is reassuring and invaluable for the patient.'
