TRAFFORD General’s ante natal clinic is to receive the gift of vital new piece of equipment this Christmas.

John Lewis Trafford donated £1,260 from its quarterly £3,000 Community Matters fund to MedEquip4Kids - a charity that provides equipment and improves facilities in hospitals.

The store has fundraising projects all over the North West, including an appeal to buy two fetal dopplers for the ante natal clinic at Trafford General and the John Lewis donation will be paying for one of them.

The £1,255 machines monitor an unborn child’s wellbeing and diagnose any problems that might lead to an emergency delivery or problems after birth.

Rose Franks, MedEquips4Kids’ community fundraiser, said: “A huge thank you to the staff and customers at John Lewis Trafford for voting to support MedEquip4Kids.

“Their donation will help to fund one of the fetal dopplers for the ante natal clinic at Trafford General Hospital, benefitting babies in their local community.”

Carole Hartley, JL Trafford’s community liaison coordinator, said: “This is a really good cause and it gives us great satisfaction that we can help the charity and the hospital in this way.”

The remainder of the fund has been shared between a healthy eating project in Salford and Independent Choices, which provides a confidential helpline service to women experiencing domestic abuse in Manchester.

Another Trafford charity Place2Be, is among the three good causes now getting a chance to share in the next quarter’s fund, which will be handed out at the end of January.

Place2Be is a nationwide charity providing counselling and therapeutic support to school children struggling to cope with issues such as bereavement, bullying and domestic violence.
