SCBU benefits from islander's fun

Money raised during a police family fun day will help buy the equipment to transport sick babies to the UK.
 
Last night three geographical officers from E Shift went to Jersey's Special Care Baby Unit to present the cheque for £2,300 to the staff. The money was raised during a community day on June 23rd at St Mary's School.
 
The cash will go towards Family Centred items and development aids for the department as well as contributing to a Gas and Blood machine used when transporting sick babies to UK. The department are working towards purchasing this and this money will greatly assist in the future purchase of this item.
 
Sergeant Chris Thomas, who went to present the cheque along with PC Amanda Ingram and PC Harry Matthews, said: "The staff were hugely appreciative of the donation. Many of them came to the fun day and helped out with a stall and said that they thoroughly enjoyed the event and loved being part it. They also said they saw many parents whose children had been through SCBU and they loved the opportunity to speak with them and see how the children were developing.
 
"From a police point of view we are delighted to have raised so much money for such a worthwhile cause “ one that was put forward by our officers. We want to say thank you again to everyone that came and everyone that helped, we are already planning next year's so we will see you there!
