My links to the John Radcliffe and SSNAP go back a long way, I lived with my husband round the corner in Old Marston, I worked in the Eye Hospital (having transferred from the Radcliffe Infirmary before it closed) and my first child, Evie, was born 6 weeks premature and spent over 2 weeks being cared for by the wonderful SCBU and SSNAP staff.
I moved out of Oxford but always kept links with the hospital, old colleagues have become lifetime friends and I have made new friends who are close to the maternity wards, both through SSNAP and community midwifery. My second child, Fred, was born 4 weeks premature, having been delivered by my husband on the floor of our bedroom after a 30minute labour. This meant, once again, that we needed the professional support of SCBU. I am pleased to say that child number 3, Woody, was a bit more straightforward so no help was needed in the end!
Since owning Jolly Good Brownies I was keen to make sure the business found a way to support the local community and a charity close to my heart. I couldn't be happier to start a partnership with SSNAP, it means so much to be able to contribute to a cause that is truly life changing.
