‘Our youngest daughter, Lara, who is now a very healthy 12 year old, was born 3 months early weighing only 2lbs 10oz. She spent 2 months in the neo-natal intensive care unit here in Guernsey. We were lucky she was kept here as many parents have to stay in Southampton for their baby’s care, away from home. It is for reasons like this that I want to raise as much as possible to help families who have to seek off-island treatment for their child.
The PPBF is raising money to provide a dedicated environment for families that is close to Southampton Hospital. They aim to purchase a property which they will turn into a home-from-home for families during the most critical time of their little one’s life. The project is called The Burrow and I really want to help them make it a reality. I feel in life we all need challenges to motivate us and find out just how far we can push ourselves.’
