Purple Parties

To recognise this day, our NICU (L&D) and SCBU (Bedford) Teams will hold their annual ‘Purple Parties’, where they decorate the unit with all things purple and give out cakes to staff and patients to boost some morale across the units. All money raised will benefit the Parents’ Accommodations.
