No-one can imagine what the parents of babies in intensive care go through as they watch helplessly while doctors try to save their children's lives.

But we can all help to make an extraordinarily tough situation a little bit easier.

It is understandable that most parents want to be by their child’s side when they are in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

That is why McKee House, a few minutes away from the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, is such a vital resource - because it means parents can be close to their loved ones at all times.

The hospital’s target of raising £15,000 per year, so mums and dads don’t have worry about the stress of paying even a nominal charge at McKee House, is ambitious. But giving these parents the chance to spend time with their children is priceless.
