HertsPrems Official Intro
HertsPrems has been set up by parents who met at Watford General Hospital-Special Care Baby Unit
We are trying to raise awareness and money for hospitals i.e WGH SCBU and L&D NICU that have helped us, through our journey following having premature babies.
April 2012 is when this group was founded and by December 2013 we had raised over 9K. We hope 2013 brings about some good things for HertsPrems… http://www.justgiving.com/teams/hertsprems
Our first fundraiser in 20 June 2012 was a Zumbathon at Bushey Grove Gym, Bushey in aid of NICU L&D https://www.ldh.nhs.uk/NICU_Appeal.htm
We had a fundraising day on Saturday 28th July 2012 from 2pm at the children’s Westfield centre Watford
September 9th 2012 at Hill Farm, Radlett held a huge event Horse and Dog Show plus a Talent Show in honour Hertsprems supporting charities.
The Purple Rain Dinner Dance to mark World Premature Day on 16 November 2012 at Blue Check Resturant, Bushey was sold out..100 patrons
Christmas fair on 1 December 2012 was again a big hit at Westfield Centre Watford WD18 6AE.
We really are really overwhelmed but the support received thus far and we are eternally grateful to all our supporters who believe in what we were trying to achieve, and helped us realize our dreams…We will carry on doing the best for such a good cause whilst offer support to anyone who might need a shoulder to lean on!!!
