Wedding Belles

Your fundraising stories

Peter and Michelle's beautiful twin daughters, Aika and Coco spent many weeks on the nnu at St George's having been born prematurely and they were very, very small as a result of the twin to twin transfusion syndrome they had suffered from.

Michelle says "Coco was particularly small and as the consultant said she is in a small club of babies that make it at her birth weight.  Her being here doesn't start from January.  Many days, months and years have been spent by doctors and nurses helping similar babies. Their skill, expertise and unrelenting belief in providing excellent care have given her more than a fighting chance.  

We're grateful for the care Aika and Coco have received.  The good health of our babies is all we wanted during the many stressful long days and nights. So when we planned our wedding we decided to ask for donations to First Touch in lieu of wedding presents"

As a result of the generosity of Peter and Michelle's friends and family they were able to donate almost £1500 to First Touch. 

We wish them all every happiness.
