We’re supporting Cots for Tots’ Christmas appeal
We’re delighted to announce that we’re supporting the Cots for Tots’ 2016 Christmas Stocking appeal.
Cots for Tots is a Bristol-based charity that is committed to supporting the families of sick and premature babies in Bristol’s special care baby unit at St Michael’s Hospital.
As well as fundraising for life-saving equipment and new facilities, Cots for Tots runs its own dedicated 12-bedroom house – the Cots for Tots house. Located directly opposite the hospital, the house provides accommodation for families of babies being treated in the special care unit.
The house costs £300 a day to run and is completely funded by the Cots for Tots appeal.
Throughout December, you can send a special message to families who are staying at the Tots for Cots house. Messages will be displayed on a Christmas Stocking in the house, with donations going towards helping special care babies and their families at what is a very difficult time
Samantha Furley, Marketing Manager at Barcan+Kirby, said:
“We’re delighted to be supporting Cots for Tots Christmas stocking appeal. It’s an honour to be involved and all of the staff at Barcan+Kirby feel proud that we’re giving our support to such a worthwhile initiative.
I’m a parent and so I’m well aware of the work that they do in the special care baby unit. I was lucky enough not to need their help, but genuinely hope that this appeal is a huge success and goes some way in helping Cots for Tots provide vital help, support and encouragement to the parents of sick and premature babies.”
