Twin cot boost from ho­tel team

Wishaw Press - - SCHOOL NEWS - Niki Ten­nant

The team at The Com­mer­cial Ho­tel in Wishaw have raised £5,000 to en­able Uni­ver­sity Hos­pi­tal Wishaw’s neona­tal unit to buy a twin cot.

The amount was raised over a com­bi­na­tion of char­ity events through­out 2017.

The Com­mer­cial team were busy do­ing ev­ery­thing from hill walks, to char­ity nights and quizzes. Gen­er­ous cus­tomers got be­hind the cause when staff do­nated their tips and dis­played their char­ity buck­ets at ev­ery op­por­tu­nity.

As well as fundrais­ing, staff also col­lected Easter eggs, se­lec­tion packs and food pack­ages.

Adele Montgomery, gen­eral man­ager at The Com­mer­cial Ho­tel, said: “We want to put some­thing back into our com­mu­nity, and Wishaw Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal is on our doorstep. There’s a great team here who will go the ex­tra mile to raise money for char­ity, and we’re very grate­ful to have cus­tomers who are al­ways happy to sup­port us.

“We’re de­lighted to do­nate this money to the team at the neona­tal unit who work tire­lessly to sup­port ba­bies and their fam­i­lies”.

Wendy Drys­dale, se­nior mid­wife, women’s ser­vices, said: “Once again the staff and par­ents of ba­bies in the neona­tal unit at Uni­ver­sity Hos­pi­tal Wishaw are very thank­ful for the on­go­ing sup­port that the man­age­ment team, staff and cus­tomers of the Com­mer­cial Ho­tel in Wishaw have pro­vided to the neona­tal unit.

“Fre­quently over the past few years the ho­tel has sup­ported ur­gently-needed ac­com­mo­da­tion for par­ents and also made do­na­tions to the unit. Th­ese do­na­tions are in­valu­able and en­able the neona­tal unit to pur­chase ad­di­tional items that contribute to an im­proved ex­pe­ri­ence and en­hanced care for the ba­bies and par­ents.

“The staff in­tend to pur­chase a fur­ther twin cot with this do­na­tion.

“Karen Creer, se­nior charge mid­wife in­formed us that par­ents of twins feed­back how good it is to have th­ese cots to keep their ba­bies to­gether. This also has sev­eral health and well­be­ing ben­e­fits for the ba­bies.”
