Tim & Clare Moore are arranging a silent disco on Saturday 23rd November at Tylers Green Village Hall, to raise funds for this vital machine for Wycombe Birth Centre.
Their baby Rafa was born with severe jaundice and needed twice daily blood tests to check the level of bilirubin in the blood. This is ideally done with something called a ‘centrifuge’ machine, which rapidly tests the blood. Sadly, in High Wycombe, there is no centrifuge machine. After a difficult time that was distressing for the baby and family, they were able to travel to Stoke Mandeville Hospital where there was a machine. The good news is that this worked and Rafa is fully fit!
What if Tim & Clare were able to bring a centrifuge machine right here to High Wycombe? A machine that could offer simple, pain-free tests, delivered in less than 10 minutes, easing the distress of babies and parents while saving all those precious travel hours. At the same time, furnishing the already fabulous Wycombe Birth Centre with a state-of-the-art machine to benefit babies for years to come and to support the amazing midwives in all their wonderful work in our local community. So, that’s why they now want to raise £2,500 to make this a reality – to buy a centrifuge machine that would benefit 150 families every year in High Wycombe and the surrounding area.
