Buy a Night

Host a Night for the PPBF

The PPBF manages and maintains compassionate housing right next to Southampton Hospital called Aggie’s Burrow and Isaac’s Pad. These cosy, private and well-equipped flats are a lifeline for local families if a premature baby or critically ill child requires off-island treatment.

Our Buy-A-Night campaign, invites the community to safeguard the future of these vital flats, by purchasing and personalising a night of their choice. But, this isn’t the only way to help us maintain each ‘home from home’ and keep families together.

You can also Host a Night to secure many more nights, for families going through difficult and uncertain times.

Thinking about a corporate sponsorship?
