This years Heart Awards take place on 1st June 2018 and is our way to recognise the hard work and dedication our staff put in tirelessly across the entire Hospital.

Wasp Security Ltd provide Intruder Alarm, CCTV Installations, Access Control, Intercom and Automation Systems from places such as Barnsley Hospital.

Alex Fisher is the proprietor of WASP Security of Sheffield  and has provided the technical security provision to the Trust for the past ten years. He is considered a friend of the security team at the Hospital, always willing to go that extra mile to provide a secure and safe environment for patients and staff.

Alex has always been a very keen supporter of the Hospital Charity, he is an absolute pleasure to be associated with and is a contractor/provider who always puts the NHS and patients first.

Alex Fisher, Technical Engineer from WASP Security said “When I was first asked to sponsor and present a Heart Award, I actually thought it was an “Art Award”, which conjured up visions of travelling to Hollywood, rubbing shoulders with Jennifer Lawrence, Patrick Stewart or Ian McKellen.  I soon discovered, however, this award is actually to be presented to far more important people than mere actors, celebrities or cinematic superstars; it is for people who change, improve or, in some cases, save lives on a daily basis. So, I’m more than happy to be doing what I see as my fair share of contributing towards recognising these real life unsung heroes.”

‘Giant money box’ scoops £60,000 for Tiny Hearts Appeal

A BIG thank you to the hospital’s staff, patients and public who’ve made a donation into our Tiny Hearts Appeal Incubator – no matter how big or small. The incubator has now raised a staggering £60,000!

The initiative was officially launched at World Prematurity Day on 17 November 2015. It has proven to be a huge success ever since, contributing significantly to the charity’s Tiny Hearts Appeal. The current total stands at £621,423.84.

Could you host our 2nd incubator?

We are very lucky to have secured a second collection incubator! We would love more businesses to take our second incubator for a week or even a month to help us raise vital funds for the appeal. If you are interested in hosting the incubator and would like to rise to the challenge to see how much you can raise, please get in touch with the charity.

What is the Tiny Heart Appeal?

A campaign to raise £1 million to support the development of a new, state of the art neonatal unit. The unit is for babies who need special care and will be situated alongside the Barnsley Birthing Centre. This means that the babies will not have to be exposed to different environments and different temperature changes. Nor will they have to be taken into an elevator. Premature babies are underdeveloped and have to be given extra help for their tiny bodies to cope with the outside world. They can spend up to 13-14 weeks on the unit. The care on the unit is focused around allowing the babies to fully develop. The current unit needs to be updated and expanded in order to allow parents to have proper bonding time with their babies.

The incubator is acting as a giant money box to raise funds for the appeal. It has been sealed and secured by the Trust’s engineering department to ensure it is safe.

If you’d like to support the Tiny Hearts Appeal, you can make a donation online at www.justgiving.com/tinyhearts or alternatively, contact the charity on 01226 431650.

 

Pictures that will melt your ‘Tiny Heart’

The gorgeous Darla rose was just 5 weeks old when these pictures were taken. Darla’s family used the Stan Plus Stan Two New-born vouchers in aid of the Tiny Hearts Appeal.

Garry, Darla Rose’s dad said ‘Stan and the team were fantastic, if Darla was a little unsettled they played sonogram sounds for her to simulate being inside the womb. On every different set that we had a picture taken, Stan would always use hot towels and a hair dryer for heat to keep Darla nice and warm between takes’. ‘I would highly recommend Stan plus Stan and the vouchers we used were a great contribution to Tiny Hearts Appeal, we are more than happy with the photographs of Darla. So much so that we’ve just booked a second shoot for when she is 1 for a cake smash!’

If you would like to get your hands on a Stan Plus Stan Two New-born shoot for just a £30 donation to the Tiny Hearts Appeal, please call us today on 01226 431650.
