Providing a ‘hug in a box’ to families in the Special Care Baby Unit at Jersey Hospital.
Little Miracles has been set us to practically support parents who have a baby in the Special Care Baby Unit in Jersey General Hospital. Every family that has a baby admitted to SCBU in Jersey receives ‘a hug in a box’ – special keepsake box filled with gifts to help them during their stay.After spending 8 weeks with their son, Harry, in SCBU in 2011, Robin de Gruchy-Wilson & Cirsty de Gruchy, wanted to set up a charity to practically help other families going through a similar experience.Since April 2014, every family with a baby who has been admitted to SCBU has received one of these precious care packages.In May 2020, Little Miracles charity decided to close down the charity and handover the collected funds to Friends of SCBU (in a ring fenced account) to continue to provide boxes to our SCBU families going forward. As both charities have worked closely together in previous years, this was a natural decision fully supported by the Jersey Charities Commission and everyone at Little Miracles are delighted that Friends of SCBU have agreed to continue with this incredibly special way in which we have been supporting SCBU families.
