Browne Jacobson raises over £2000 for Tiny Babies Appeal

13 February 2012

The Birmingham office of law firm Browne Jacobson has dug deep and raised over £2200 for the Tiny Babies Big Appeal.

Run by the Birmingham Womens NHS Foundation Trust Fundraising Office, the Tiny Babies Big Appeal was chosen by the office as its Charity of the Year 2011 and over the past 12 months employees have staged a number of fundraising events including Jeans Days, raffles, book sales, jewellery sales and donations.

The money will go towards buying equipment for the new neonatal unit to support the Trusts work with premature and sick babies.

The brand new £7m Neonatal Unit was opened in 2010 and demand for the specialist care has spiralled in recent years. The unit currently receives over 1000 admissions a year from across the Birmingham, the West Midlands and further afield.

Alison Brown, Business Operations Manager and member of the Community Action Group at Browne Jacobson said:

"Each year the entire office votes for a local charity it would like to support and the Tiny Babies Appeal Campaign was a very popular choice last year.

"We have always had a strong community action spirit across all our three offices and we hope that the money we have raised will make a difference towards helping the Trust achieve its ambitions for the unit."

Fundraising Manager, Eileen Rock at Birmingham Womens commented, "We are so grateful to Browne Jacobson for their support and this fantastic donation. The Womens Hospital cares for some of the sickest and tiniest babies in the region and the support we receive will help to purchase live saving equipment."
