We're building a start for all their futures

Welcome to the Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation


Raised for The Burrow so far

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 three Trustees, Andy and Jo Priaulx and Richard Le Tocq, our Secretary 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, in more recent years the PPBF has taken on the management of a property in Southampton which provides a home-from-home for families to stay in whilst their children are being treated in hospital there.

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

You can call Ali on 07781 160080 or email

Groundwork on our most ambitious project is officially underway.

The Burrow is a home-from-home for island families with a baby or poorly child who needs special care in Southampton. Just a stone’s throw from the Hospital, this flat will provide a safe haven at a time of real uncertainty. Independent of the Hospital, yet reassuringly close; Cosy, yet spacious, providing exactly what parents, who are miles away from their island, need to feel like they are home.

"We were incredibly lucky to spend seven weeks in the (Southampton) flat. You provide something wonderful and we will always be in your debt. Your flat gave us some normality in what was anything but a normal time in our lives. It was simply a massive help to us. "

The PPBF supplied the incubator and hot cot that Oliver used for the first seven weeks of his life. Words do not capture the essence of our gratitude and feelings, the nearest word is indebted but it does not really cover it."
