Thanks to Early Lives and the generosity of a veteran family, parents on the UCLH neonatal unit can enjoy a decent cup of coffee.

The Whittaker family bought the unit a coffee machine as a thank you for the care they received. Early Lives makes sure there is a steady supply of pods.

Helen, mum of George, says “We spent 5 months on the unit and often longed for a decent cup of coffee, especially when it was one of those days when you didn’t want to leave and had been up all night. So we wanted to give a little thank you to the staff who work such long hours and took great care of George, and also help future parents who would be in the same situation.”
