Co-op Local Community Fund

Category : Events

It has now been five months since we became one of the Co-op Local Community Fund projects and many Co-op members have chosen us to be their local cause.  Thank you to everyone who has done so – it really does make a difference even if you think you don’t spend much in the Co-op!  Every penny really does add up and we have currently raised almost £350!  If you are not a member or have not chosen us as your local cause, then it’s not too late!  Funds will continue to be raised for us until the end of October.  Membership costs £1 and means that when you buy any Co-op branded products, 1% of what you spend goes to a local cause (that’s us if you choose us!) and 5% comes back to you as money on your card that you can spend on anything in the Co-op store.  

To become a member and/or choose us as your local cause, please click here!  Also, please do spread the word and encourage family and friends to do the same!

Business Wanted to Sponsor vCreate!

Category : Events

Some of our regular followers may remember that the neo-natal unit launched the use of vCreate in May last year and it has proved to be a resounding success for families who find themselves with a baby on the unit.

vCreate is a secure video messaging service that allows staff to send video updates to parents for those times when they’re unable to be with their child.  Upon discharge, all the videos can be downloaded by parents to keep and they are then wiped from the system at the unit.  Over the past 12 months, the feedback from parents who have benefitted from this technology has been overwhelming. 

We would love to be able to continue to provide vCreate.  It costs £4320 for the year for enough licences to ensure all parents can benefit.  If you own a business or know someone who does, you could elect to sponsor vCreate for the unit and have your company logo displayed on all the videos that are sent to parents. 

For more information, or to discuss this further, please contact Clare – admin@emilyharrisfoundation.org
