Southampton Hospital charity receive donation of £2,050


Wessex Vale Crematorium Manager, Lisa Johnson was pleased to provide the Neonatal Unit at Southampton Hospital charity a donation of £2,050, which had been raised from the recycling of unwanted metals and orthopaedic implants donated by the next of kin, whose funeral service has taken place at the Crematorium.

Manager, Lisa Johnson commented “These Kind donations really do make a difference and the Crematorium was pleased to be able to support the Neonatal Unit at Southampton Hospital.

Alanna Lee, Community Events Coordinator, comments: “We were delighted to receive a donation for £2,050 by Wessex Vale’s Crematorium. The money has been allocated to the neonatal fund of Southampton Hospital Charity to buy two Astodias machines. The neonatal unit deals with premature babies, so imagine the size of the baby and how fragile they are. The Astodias machines can be taken straight to the baby, and contain an ultraviolet light. These shine through the babies hands and show up the blood vessels, which means that our medical staff can put IV and medical lines in the first time round which is especially important when time may be of the essence.”
