Our Neonatal Appeal

Our Neonatal Appeal

Our new Appeal is for a state-of-the-art unit for newborn babies - and their families

Liverpool Legend Jamie Carragher is backing our new fundraising appeal for a brand new, state of the art Surgical Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

Jamie, who was treated at Alder Hey’s neonatal ward for the first six weeks of his life, is launching the appeal to raise upto £3m for the new Surgical NICU on behalf of Alder Hey Children’s Charity.

Fiona Ashcroft, CEO of Alder Hey Children’s Charity said: “Jamie has been a supporter of the work of the hospital for many years and is a brilliant Charity Champion for Alder Hey – we were delighted this Liverpool Legend accepted our suggestion to head the Appeal to help us spread the word in the region as well as across the country. We can’t wait to see the build start, this unit is going to be world leading!”

Jamie Carragher said: “My family and I will forever be grateful to Alder Hey after they cared for me as a baby. The plan to build a new neonatal unit sounds like a fantastic idea. It will help keep families together at such a worrying time and provide lifesaving treatment. I am proud to support this appeal and it is something we can all get behind.”
