New President 2020/21 and 21/22:
Steve's chosen charity for this year is Emily's Star. Emily's Star - Home (emilysstar.co.uk)
1) To grant wishes to families who have a child or children with any life limiting or life threatening illness & are supported by a Children with Complex Needs nursing team within Milton Keynes. We support children from birth until 25 years old. Our wishes are to help families make memories & we carry this out in various ways.
2) To raise awareness of Trisomy 18 also known as Edwards Syndrome, the UK's second most common syndrome. We also wish to increase the use of the wording "life limiting" when a Trisomy 18 diagnosis is given instead of "incompatible with life".
3) To provide neonatal boxes to Milton Keynes neonatal unit, which include items for both mum and premature or underweight babies. These boxes are called "Emily's gift". We also provide Mini Packs to any baby currently in a UK Neonatal unit. These can be ordered through our website.
