Supported by the Chairman Martin Bugeja and CEO Emma Bugeja they have just donated £5,000.00!!! Wow and WOW. Phenomenal phone call to take, knowing that this will make an incredible difference! Welcome to #TeamNoah Thank you Irina, Martin & Emma.

09.01.17 Little Man's Birthday!


Today is Noah's birthday, he would have been 4yrs old!!


It's amazing to think all that has been inspired from his big fight to make it home from NICU!


As of today Team Noah has raised a little over £195,000 !!


19 items of life saving and life changing equipment have been bought across both units! Together with additional care support equipment such including 60 sets of Zaky hands and 600 Cuski comforters.


We have heard from many parents who felt the kit bought meant or contributed to their babies safe arrival home.... We think that this clearly means that Team Noah is  achieving it's principle goal in helping to get more babies home!! Enough said!


However there unfortunately is always another baby on unit who could do with something else, another nurse or doctor deeply frustrated because they can't help as much as they would like, so onwards we go!!


We got 3mths with Noah that without the care he received would not have been possible.  The memory of the cuddles with our tiny man will be with us forever! 


Our sincere thanks to everyone who has supported us and the charity! 


Twinkle bright! Come On The Noah
