The Thomas Cook Children’s Charity have donated more than £11,000 to fund two state-of-the-art jaundice meters for the Stockport Community Midwifery Team based at Stepping Hill Hospital.
Children at Brabyns Preparatory School in Marple were celebrating this week, as they completed two successful years of fundraising on behalf of the charity.
Pupils at the school have taken part in various activities including a sponsored swim, shoe cleaning, coffee and cake mornings, collections at carol concerts and lots of other great ideas.
In total their efforts have raised a tremendous £4,638 for the charity. Funds last year were used to provide a Pulse Oximeter for very sick children at Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport. This year's money has gone towards equipping the new Paediatric Emergency Department at Stepping Hill Hospital. The children at Brabyns have bought distraction equipment to help injured, frightened children to feel more comfortable as they undergo treatment.
Huge thanks to Head Teacher Lee Sanders, and all the staff, pupils and parents at the school.
