George Green supports new charity for 2020

Midlands law firm George Green LLP has recently chosen the charity it will raise funds for during the course of 2020. After consulting with its staff, George Green has decided that during 2020 it will raise funds to support Birmingham Women’s Hospital Charity.

Birmingham Women’s Hospital Charity seeks to improve the patient experience for all the women, babies and their families at the Women’s Hospital. The charity is currently raising £3.5m bringing a dedicated and standalone bereavement centre to the hospital for families who have experienced pregnancy or baby loss, including stillbirths and neonatal death. Woodland House, as it will be known, will have rooms for parents and their babies to be together which they so desperately need and deserve and will also house support groups and follow up appointments as well as a mortuary. At the moment follow up specialist appointments are in the hospital where you have to walk in seeing parents with their babies and women who are pregnant or in labour which is of course  hard, especially in the early days. This new building will help take that away.

George Green LLP and its staff are holding events and taking part in various activities throughout the year to raise money for Birmingham Women’s Hospital Charity.

David Stevenson, Chief Executive George Green said “I am delighted that once again we have been able to nominate a local charity to support over the next year. As ever, we will I suspect have some fun along the way as we endeavour to raise some money for the trust”.

Saranne Moreno, Corporate Strategic Partnerships Manager at Birmingham Women’s Hospital Charity, said “We’re absolutely thrilled that the team at George Green LLP have chosen us as their charity of the year.  Our aim is to make sure that our patients have the best possible experience while they’re with us, whether that’s through helping to fund equipment, research or improving the hospital environment as with our Woodland House Appeal. With over 2,000 families experiencing pregnancy or baby loss at our hospital every year, Woodland House is so desperately needed and having George Green LLP support us will make such a difference.”

Birmingham Women’s Hospital is one of only two dedicated women’s hospitals in the UK caring for over 50,000 women, men and their families every year.
