08.12.16 WOW Legg Mason
Amazing donation of £10,000.00 received from Legg Mason  today to go towards our next equipment funding..... speechless! What a donation!!! Welcome to TeamNoah, welcome to making a difference!


11.11.16 Update & Thank you from Royal London NICU
Today we received an update on how the equipment funded by NBC is being used on the NICU unit and the massive impact it has had in terms of frequency and benefit of use. From the cliff face you can see how NBC are making a difference... indeed how you have made a difference! #TeamNoah. Please click on the letter images below to read in full!

07.11.16 At Basildon Making a difference

We have just received this fantastic photo (Right) from the Basildon University NICU team. Amongst the fantastic staff you will see our latest funding purchases. This includes 4no. 'Masimo Saturation monitors'; these pieces of kit are in great demand and constant use and are vital on the unit to monitor babies oxygen requirements 24/7. The larger machine at the centre of shot is a 'Cerebral Function Monitoring Machine' (CFM). This is a valuable machine for diagnosis and treatment. it monitors brain activity especially in babies born in poor condition and where there are fears of oxygen deprivation at birth. 

Again a massive thank you to all our supporters and the team on ward. With out all of you NBC couldn't continue to make the difference we are.

We are delighted to let everyone know that we have just sent a cheque for £12k to fund a further Criticool unit for the Royal London NICU. Our last Criticool purchase has literally saved lives and by having an additional unit on ward the treatment can be offered to more babies at any given moment. A colossal thank you to all of those who have contributed to #TeamNoah allowing us to continue making a difference!
