Who are we?
The Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation was set up by three times World Touring Car Champion Andy Priaulx MBE and his wife Jo in 2003 following the premature births of both their children.
Andy and Jo felt the support they received during and after each birth was amazing and this inspired the PPBF.
The Foundation comprises four Trustees Andy and Jo Priaulx, Chairman Richard Le Tocq, Guy Hardill, Sammy Meerveld and Ali Lihou, who helps Jo with the day-to-day running of the charity, and a wonderful team of volunteers who offer their time and skills to help us with various events and activities.
What do we do?
The Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation is committed to supporting premature babies, children and their families in times of need.
Our principle aim is to raise money to assist the local neonatal unit and to provide support to the families of premature babies. Whilst this is still our main objective, we are managing a flat in Southampton and also preparing for the opening of our very own property for families to stay in whilst their children are being treated in the UK.
We also support families of children who are seriously ill or suffering life threatening conditions.
Help us raise money
All funds are gratefully received by the PPBF and are used to assist premature babies, children and their families resident in the Bailiwick of Guernsey.
If you have an idea, or would like to get involved and raise funds for the PPBF please get in touch. Whether it be a mufti day at work, a big event or a once in a lifetime challenge, we would love to hear from you and will work with you to help wherever possible. Fundraising pages can be set up via our page on the donation site Just Giving www.justgiving.com/PPBF/
You can call Ali on 07781 160080 or email [email protected].
Bunny Miles is the new PPBF fundraising concept.
It opens up the possibility for people in Guernsey to donate a regular amount, or indeed a one-off donation, towards raising money for those who have to fly to Southampton and stay at Aggie’s Burrow and Isaac’s Pad, while their poorly child is attending the hospital. Bunny Miles, like air miles, will allow local people to help pay for the ongoing annual upkeep and maintenance costs of keeping the houses open for Bailiwick of Guernsey families in need.
