As the summer kicks in and fingers crossed, the weather holds out, we'd like to invite you our home heroes to flex your (fundraising) muscles through to help babies arrive, survive and thrive.
Did you know that during lockdown more than 400 little treasures were delivered at the National Maternity Hospital, Holles Street? It's a busy place all year round, and the NMH frontline staff, mothers and fathers have been fantastic in helping keep everyone safe throughout this time.
We need your ongoing support to provide the essential funds, equipment and resources that help make the difference to tiny babies and their families.
We are asking you to set up a virtual, at-home or personal challenge and to ask people to donate during this time. When it comes to creating your own personal challenge or virtual fundraiser, the possibilities are endless! If you have an idea for a unique and creative fundraising project or activity, please get in touch.
Pick your fundraiser, create your JustGiving page here https://www.justgiving.com/nmhfoundation and get in touch, firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll help you every step of the way. You can now also create a Facebook fundraiser here https://www.facebook.com/fund/helpinghollesstreet/
