Neonatal and maternity charity Baby Beat has sourced around 75 presents for mums and babies on the maternity units at Royal Preston Hospital.


The gifts were generously donated by Tesco in Leyland and Morrisons in Preston, consisting of toiletries for mums and baby gifts for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).  Fiona Prescott, who runs Never Ending Stories, also donated some baby books for the units.

Wrapped by Baby Beat volunteers, the gifts have been distributed to staff on the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and other maternity units on the hospital site.

Baby Beat Manager Cathy Skidmore said: “We are so grateful to Fiona, as well as Tesco and Morrisons for thinking of mums and babies on our units during this festive period.

“It may be a very different Christmas this year, but it is so wonderful to know that our local community still supports us and these gifts will bring plenty of smiles to mums and their new arrivals spending time with us in the coming days. Thank you!”
