Congratulations to all those that took part in the OFSCBT 2nd ever 10km run at Capstone Country Park, you did amazingly well and thank you for the support.  We have so far calculated that we raised over £4000 in sponsorship alone!

2014 sees an exciting year for the Oliver Fisher Special Care Baby Trust as we are launch a brand new appeal in order to raise funds to refit our High Dependency Nursery.  The Hippo Appeal is looking to raise £100,000 to go towards this improvement project which is likely to be carried out towards the end of 2014.  The Unit currently has 36 cot spaces spread over 3 Nurseries; Intensive Care, High Dependency and Special Care.  The 8 spaces in the High Dependency Nursery are currently using equipment and facilities that are in urgent need of updating.  We need to take the opportunity to completely refurbish this room and need your help to make sure that our High Dependency Nursery can continue to provide a first class service for babies in Medway now and in the future.  Anyone wishing to find out more about how they can support the Oliver Fisher Special Care Baby Trust through the Hippo Appeal please contact us today or donate directly at www.justgiving.com/TheHippoAppeal.  As of September 2014 we are currently at a total of £83,000, thank you to all those that have donated so far.Oliver Fisher Ball Flyer

Caring for Premature Babies
