Community group collaborates with University Hospital for a successful delivery

National Grid Metering's community group has been working with University Hospital in Birmingham to donate money and assist in the preparation of 100 packs for premature babies. 

Our community group has been working alongside the University Hospitals group in Birmingham over the past two years on a variety of activities.

The latest venture was to assist the charity with preparing Premature baby packs for their Neo-natal Units at Good Hope and Heartlands hospitals.  

Each year the hospitals distribute 1,000 packs to the families at a cost of £7 per pack. The premature baby packs consist of a baby grow, water bottle, tea and coffee, as well as a welcome pack all in a handy bag.

National Grid Metering employees Jackie Batchelor and Faye Dowling went to help the staff from University Hospital Birmingham to prepare 100 packs, with the money for the packs coming from our Charity Group budget.
