Amarleen was born 14 weeks in 2006, early weighing just 720g. She is now about to celebrate her 10th birthday and has challenged herself to cycle 10k to raise funds to help support the Winnicott Baby Unit at St Mary's Hospital which helped save her life. She has also chosen The Winnicott Foundation as the topic for her English Speaking Board exam and made this lovely short film, which she edited herself, to explain why it is so important to support us https://youtu.be/5fSL19078PA

Help us to continue giving hope and support to premature and sick babies and their families, and be part of our future at our 2016 30th Anniversary Ball!
Babies need the comfort of their parents and it has been proven that they can thrive when their parents are with them. We are raising funds to create six new parent bedrooms and a kitchen/sitting room in the neonatal unit at St Mary's so more parents can stay close to their babies. These new residential areas will provide quiet, peaceful spaces for parents, an escape from the daily routine of a busy hospital, where they can take time out to make a cup of tea, use the microwave, chat to other parents or just recharge their batteries, safe in the knowledge that their babies are nearby.
Thank you to all the Year 10 students at St Angela’s Ursuline School, Forest Gate, who have raised £678.47 to help more sick and premature babies at our two neonatal units.
Each Year 10 form group researched and then presented a charity to the full year group for consideration. The Winnicott Foundation was chosen, and the fund raising began! The students held baking sales, two discos for the lower year groups, hot chocolate sales and sold neon bracelets. They were relentless in their fund raising efforts and were delighted to finally raise such an amazing total.
Pictured here with their certificate, which is now proudly displayed on their Year 10 notice board, the students are truly delighted to have made such a difference.
A big thank-you from us all!
We did it – we raised a fantastic £2286.70 at Paddington Station! Thank-you to everyone who volunteered their time to help us – all the Winnicott babies who came to support us with their parents, grandparents, family and friends and our neonatal staff.
Also to everyone who made donations, Gareth Gates, who came to say hello, and, the two policeman who kindly escorted the incubator safely back to St Mary's for us. You are amazing! Thank-you
For parents whose babies are born prematurely or sick and need the extra support of a neonatal unit it can be a very traumatic time.
Here at The Winnicott Foundation we do all we can to support parents to spend time with their babies and to bond with them as much as possible in those precious early days.
With the expansion of the neonatal unit at St Mary's we have launched an appeal to create six new parent bedrooms and a kitchen/sitting room in the unit so more parents can have free accommodation and stay close to their babies. These new areas will provide quiet, peaceful spaces for parents, an escape from the daily routine of a busy hospital, where they can take time out to make a cup of tea, use the microwave, chat to other parents or just recharge their batteries.
Babies tend to be more relaxed and reassured when a parent is present and when the babies are ready to go home they will be able to spend their first night in their parents bedroom with the added support of the doctors and nurses just outside the door. This 'rooming in' time allows parents to become much more confident in looking after their babies before going home.
