The team at Specsavers Chelmsley Wood have announced their chosen charity for this year as the Eden Bereavement Suite at Heartlands Hospital.
Staff at the store decided to support the suite which helps families who sadly lose their baby through miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal death. The unit provides a peaceful and private environment for parents in their time of need.
The team kicked off the fundraising on 15 February with a bake sale, while also offering specs MOTs (cleaning and adjustments) in return for donations.
‘The team were unanimous with their choice for this year’s chosen charity,’ said store director, Sukhwant Drake. ‘We’re looking forward to a fundraising-filled 2020 and hope that the community join us in our support for the Eden Suite and the families it helps.’
The Eden Bereavement Suite
The Eden Suite has been designed to provide as much privacy as possible for women and their partners, with individual ensuite rooms and a quiet garden for parents to be outside and reflect. Heartlands Hospital Charity works to provide ‘added extras’ for the Eden Suite, complementing the amazing quality of care given by the staff on the suite.
