At Highlight, we love fundraising. It’s our way of giving something back to charities for the amazing things that they do. Our most recent donation goes to Ickle Pickles.
The Ickle Pickle partnership turns gifts and donations into specialised equipment such as incubators and ventilators to help Neonatal units provide incredible levels of care for premature babies. The NHS cares for over 20,000 babies that are born too soon, or with an illness every year.
Ickle Pickles is a close cause to one of our employees in particular. Lois Paull, who is part of the service delivery team became a grandmother to baby Fergus in December 2017. Fergus was born 12 weeks premature weighing a tiny 2lb 11oz, and while in hospital Ickle Pickles made a very kind gesture in gifting him a Christmas stocking full of goodies.
Lois says, “Six months on, and Fergus has gone from a tiny handful to a big happy lump. I am so happy that Highlight has been able to give to this great charity."
