We're excited to share the news that we have received £250 funding from Taylor Wimpey for our Happy Little Hearts Appeal.

The generous donation will go towards purchasing a second incubator for Royal Brompton's Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) to care for premature babies with a patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). PDA is a congenital heart defect that affects around 50% of premature babies.  

Royal Brompton Hospital is the only place in the UK that can treat premature babies with a PDA using catheterisation, which is less invasive than the surgical alternative and has a quicker recovery time.  

Commenting on the support from Taylor Wimpey, our very own Charlotte Coldrey, Community & Events Fundraising Officer, said: “We could not continue our services without donations like this one from Taylor Wimpey. On behalf of everyone at the hospital, I would like to say a big thank you to Taylor Wimpey for their support.”

Tina Chalk, Sales Manager at Taylor Wimpey South Thames, said: “We are proud to have donated £250 to Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity who play such an important role in raising money for vital resources. We wish Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity all the best in achieving their crowdfunding target.”
