Hi all, if you remember some years ago 5 of us more elderly supporters cycled from Sixways to Newcastle Rugby Club over 300miles in aid of Acorns. We were known as the

Granddads for Acorns


We raised a fantastic amount of money the vast majority coming from members of this forum, we raised over £25,000!!

Well it is now time for the younger generation to gave a go - my daughter.

Alex and 3 other ladies, now known as The Kili-Billies, are going to climb Kilimajaro the highest mountain in Africa in Aid of

The Worcestershire Maternity Bereavement Suite

Quote:
Nurse Trudy who runs the department

For most people, losing a baby is the worst thing that they can imagine.

Worcestershire Royal Hospital (WRH) currently provides limited bereavement services to help families in our county come to terms with the loss of their baby. We met Trudy, a specialist Bereavement Support Midwife at WRH.

It is sad that such a specialism even exists but, every day, people like Trudy and the facilities they provide help a family in our community.

Trudy explained: “Your donations are so hugely important.

When the existing suite is unavailable it not so easy to create the right environment. Families definitely go home a lot quicker and this sometimes creates regrets and guilt later on in life.

It really upsets me when families are unable to use the bereavement suite because I know it can make such a difference”.

Unfortunately, Trudy and the team at Worcestershire Royal Hospital don’t have the resources or the facilities to help every family that needs their help.

Every month they are forced to turn grieving parents away. .

WRFC and Warriors Rugby are both helping and supporting the fund raising along with Tescos.

What can we do??

I know you guys and how generous you can be, this is a local charity for a much need facility here is a link to their webs site please visit have a read what it is all about and what bereaved parents have to say about the support and care they were given after the death of their newborn baby,

Having investigated the climb it most definitely not going to be plain sailing.

12 die every year, mainly from altitude sickness and they don’t all make it to the top. Once there they are 0nly allowed a short period of time at the summit befor they have to descend for their survival.

If anyone else wants to join me I shall ponsor the 4 ladies by the meters they climb.

I shall sponsor at a penny per meter climbed, anybody wish to join me?

Go for it girls and good luck an amazing cause.

Kilimanjaro Potpourri


Approximately 25,000 people attempt to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro annually. Approximately two-thirds are successful. Altitude-related problems is the most common reason climbers turn back.

There are on average 12 deaths a year whilst climbing the mountain.

A bit of competition something we all on here can join in.

Select your climber in the sponsor bracket 1p a meter climbed, 0.5p a meter climbed or 0.25 a meter climbed and then lets see just how much we can raise for them and which climber generates the most.

Now you can read all about each climber on their website before you select Kili-Billies Website

I will track and post up how the sponsorship is going and eventually how the climbers are doing. Only 66% of climbers complete the climb so lets hope all these girls can do it.

If you want to take up the challenge then email me at jp@sixwaysrugby.co.uk

On behalf of the midwives and families many many thanks.

Here is what it is all about.

It is no a stroll in the park it is 8/9 gruelling days which will test the girls to the full. It is dangerous as well as hard work. There are many that fail to make it to the top and there are several deaths each year attempting the climb.

These girls are putting their bodies on the line just like our team does every Saturday.

It is for an amazing local cause to build for "our" families in Worcestershire a Maternity Bereavement Suite. Why? Well because it is massively needed and it cannot be funded from the NHS or local government so lets all pull together and build it for ourselves, our families and for future generations.

Thank you.
