Mother and Baby Roadshow

Posted: September 14, 2012

Chippenham Birthing Centre's fundraising roadshow coming soon

Midwives and support staff at Chippenham Birthing Centre are gearing up for a special roadshow to help raise money to refurbish the centre and provide a more homely environment for mothers and their babies.

The 'Mother and Baby Roadshow' is taking place on Saturday 22nd September, from 10am-3pm at Neeld Hall in Chippenham.

The family event is free to attend and will see a host of stalls from local businesses, with everything from baby equipment, photography, crafts, to personal fitness, jewellery, nappies, and cakes. There will also be the opportunity to meet Peppa Pig who will be there from 9am.

A raffle has been organised for the roadshow with special prizes kindly donated by local businesses including Whatley Manor, The Pheasant public house, Global Travel and Allington Farm Shop.

Meg Cooper, Midwife at Chippenham Birthing Centre said:  "We are really excited about the Mother and Baby Roadshow and have had a very positive response from local businesses wanting to take part and support the event.  There are a fantastic range of stalls, with something for everyone, so we hope to get a big crowd coming down to support us on the day.

"Money raised from the roadshow and our other fundraising activities will go towards helping us refurbish the birthing centre and create a more homely, less clinical environment.  We care for over 1,800 women a year at the birthing centre, under the care of dedicated Midwives and support staff and we want to make it as comfortable as possible for mothers and their babies."

Refreshments will be provided on the day, including coffee donated from Starbucks and cakes donated by the Biddestone and Hartam Women's Institute.

Chippenham Birthing Centre would like to thank all the local businesses who have supported them with their fundraising.
