London Marathon 2018

Category : Events

As you may be aware, we have two runners who will be completing the London Marathon to raise money for us in April, one of them being Emily’s Daddy.  They will both be training hard by now and we are sure they will be motivated further if people continue to support them and sponsor them to enable them to reach their targets!

Please click on the link to visit our Virgin Money Giving London Marathon page and choose who you wish to support (or both!) to make a donation.  If you are also running in the Marathon and would like to raise money for us, then you can also set up a page and link it to our event.

Thank you!

Can You Help?

Category : Events

We are in the early stages of planning our Family Fun Day to celebrate our 10th Anniversary on Saturday 8th September 2018.  There are a number of ways you may be able to help!  Do you have any involvement in a business that may be able to provide us with activities on the day – for example, bouncy castle, children’s entertainment, disco, bar, etc?  Alternatively, would you or your business like to sponsor an activity which will enable us to pay for the service from someone else without using our existing resources or depleting the profit we hope to make?

If you have any ideas or would like to help in any way, please do get in touch by e-mailing Clare, our Foundation Manager at admin@emilyharrisfoundation.org

Supporters’ Wall of Hearts

Category : Events

We have now launched a Supporters’ Wall of Hearts which is currently on display in the main corridor of the neonatal unit.  People can purchase a heart for £1 and have their name placed on the wall (or the name of anyone they choose!).  On Thursday 7th December, we will also be in the main concourse of the hospital selling hearts and at 2pm on that day, every person that has bought a heart will be entered into a prize draw to win a luxury hamper! You can buy as many hearts as you like – the more you buy, the more chances you have of winning!

Hearts can be purchased directly from us or paid for via our PayPal Giving page.  You can also text WALL17 followed by the amount in £s you would like to spend on hearts, to 70070 (e.g. to buy one heart, text WALL17 £1 to 70070.  To buy 10 hearts, text WALL17 £10 TO 70070).

10th Anniversary – Save the Date! Saturday 8th September 2018!

Category : Events

We are now entering our 10th year and are delighted with how the charity is moving from strength to strength, continuing to support families and staff on the neonatal unit at Kings Mill Hospital and developing new ways of doing this. We are planning a big celebration to celebrate 10 years since our launch, on Saturday 8th September 2018 and would love for you to join us! Watch this space as the plans develop and in the meantime, block out the day in your diary so that you can come along and bring your friends and family too!


Had a great morning shopping for replacement bedding, crockery, cutlery and glasses for the flats in the neonatal unit!

Preparing to eat and talk about the Emily Harris Foundation to the Warsop Inner Wheel! 🙂

Disappointed to have to cancel Cake & Chat today. A nasty stomach bug swept through our family at the beginning of the week. All feeling much better now but need to leave it 72 hours before coming back onto the unit. Parents and their babies are far too precious to risk bringing any dodgy germs in! We’ll be back next week!

Good to see King’s Mill getting some positive press!

As part of his London Marathon experience, Emily’s dad has gone to London for the day to “Meet the Experts”! Managed to get his photograph with sports presenter Vassos Alexander!! Hope he got some good running tips too!!
