Our compassionate housing, right next to Southampton Hospital, provides a lifeline for families going through difficult times. But, we need your help to keep our beloved flats open.
Our cosy, fully-equipped and private flats, Aggie’s Burrow, Isaac’s Pad and Frankie’s Den, work as hard on our finances as they do to provide a lifeline for families going through difficult times. Many islanders benefit enormously from having somewhere safe to stay, if their little one is being cared for at Southampton Hospital.
We need your help to keep these lifelines running. Just £5 a month for a year (£60), can ‘Buy a Night’ for a local family, bringing them peace of mind when they need it most. Nights can be the hardest when you are unsure of what the next day might bring, so our ‘home-from-homes’ aim to alleviate some of this stress.
If you would like to request a gift certificate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your details once you have purchased your night, and we will send you a printable version.
At the end of every month, we will draw a date at random from the nights bought for Aggie’s Burrow, Isaac’s Pad or Frankie’s Den. Our ‘Star of the Month’ will then receive a lovely Sleep Well box, full of goodies kindly provided by local sponsors. Thank you to the Day Salon, Hand Picked Hotels and Guernsey Candles for their involvement. By purchasing a night, you will be entered automatically, unless you have chosen to stay anonymous.
Check out our video guide below for a step-by-step Buy-A-Night process – it’s quick and easy. You can either use Paypal or click past it to pay with a bank card instead – this clip will show you how.
Every night bought goes towards the essential running and maintenance costs needed to keep our compassionate housing open. It’s a big job, but such an important one for Guernsey families who need a place to stay while their baby or child receives off-island care. We’re now a family of three, with the addition of Frankie’s Den. Watch the video below to have a look around our latest project.
If you’d like to organise an event to raise funds for our compassionate housing, then head over to our Host-A-Night page for more information and inspiration. Whether you’re planning an event especially for the PPBF, or you’ll be fundraising during an event that has already been organised, every night counts.
You can still do this using our donate page here. We are truly grateful for all donations, however big or small, and you can also let us know if you would like your kind funds to go towards specific projects such as Baby Boxes or Neonatal Unit supplies/equipment.
‘We will always be so grateful to all the people who helped us become a family.’
“If Riley’s story can give hope to someone who may be going through the same thing, we’d be pleased to think they found some comfort in it.”
“The care and love I was shown by family, friends, specialists, midwives and not forgetting PPBF both on and off island was absolutely amazing and we cannot thank them enough.”
