October CuddleCot Fundraiser

A 'Big Feet for Baby Feet' Event

You don’t need to enter an organised event to be part of "Team Philip”; why not take part in our annual virtual event!

To celebrate our 10th anniversary we are challenging everyone to do at least 10km in October. Walk, run, cycle, skate, skateboard, swim, hop or skip, on your own or with a team of family and friends. It couldn’t be easier and with every single step you will be supporting our charity at the same time. 

This year all monies raised in October will go towards a CuddleCot, which costs around £1,800. Dealing with the death of a baby is clearly an incredibly difficult event for parents, having a CuddleCot extends the time bereaved parents can spend with their baby even allowing them the flexibility to take them home for a time. 

The CuddleCot allows the family to form an important bond with their baby; whether changing a nappy, dressing the baby, taking photographs or simply just staying close and this helps families in dealing with their loss.  Currently, the Maternity Unit has a ‘cool cot’ which has done a good job but is now dated, the new CuddleCot system can be used with a moses basket and provides the optimum temperature. 
There are 2 ways to take part:-

1. Purchase a registration HERE in our online shop and send us evidence of your runs/walks (screen shots are fine) and we will post out your medal! 


2. To get a medal for FREE please set up your own page at Justgiving which is connected to our Cuddle Cot Campaign and raise at least £50. 

An easy way to achieve 10km is to join our 10km Walk on Saturday 13th October, 7pm, Castle Kiosk (near Le Fregate) to St Aubin and back, come along and join us! You can register on our Facebook event - or just turn up on the night - and make a donation. All walkers will receive a medal. T-shirts for our Starlight Walk are also available to order here, £10 for adults £7 for children.

We'd love you to share your #BFFBF photos on Facebook or Twitter and see where your feet (or paws!) have taken you!
