Emma and friends raise a coffee for CoMET

Emma raises a coffee for CoMET

Thursday 2 May 2019

Licoln mum Emma Enderby has raised an amazing £1,287 for one of the most important medical services based at Leicester's Hospitals.

After Emma's son Stanley suffered a serious, prolonged seizure in 2018, he was transferred from Lincoln to the Queen’s Medical Centre Paediatric Intensive Care Unit in Nottingham thanks to CoMET - a dedicated critical care transport service for children in the East Midlands based at the Leicester Royal Infirmary.

Emma and her family were so grateful for the care shown to them by the CoMET team, they decided to raise money to help the team continuously improve the care they give to the sickest children in our region.

To do this, Emma held a coffee morning in Wragby Town Hall in Lincoln together with Lincolnshire-based medical emergency response charity, Lives.

A large number of friends and family attended the event, paying £1 admission and raising a cup of coffee to this highly valuable service. Lives volunteers were even on hand to provide free CPR demonstrations and training to attendees.

After the coffee had been drunk and the chatter had subsided, Emma and her guests had raised an incredible £2,574 for the two charities.

The funds were then shared equally between CoMET and Lives, with Emma popping by to Leicester's Hospitals to donate £1,287 to CoMET.

Everyone at Leicester Hospitals Charity and CoMET would like to say a heartfelt thank you to Emma and everyone who was involved in raising this amazing amount for this kind donation!
