Tiny babies at Southend Hospital receive a big helping hand
29 September 2014
Local-based company Procter & Gamble, from West Thurrock, Grays, made a small, but helpful donation to the special care baby unit (SCBU) at Southend Hospital recently.
The donation wasn't small in number, but small in size as these
were 200 Pampers premature baby nappies, perfect for little bums
and just the thing for new mums and dads of premature babies.
Ward manager, Kerry Emmerton, said: "This generous donation will
make a real difference to the babies and their families on our
neonatal unit and its so kind of Procter & Gamble (P&G) to
approach us with this support."
Paul Wilson, communities matters leader for P&G said: "We
are committed to making a real difference to the communities where
we live and work. We have recently set a new global strategy for
our social responsibility programme to improve everyday health and
confidence by experiencing P&G's unique brands."
Handing over the mini-mountain of much-needed nappies was
Procter and Gamble's Initiative Planner, Nicky Lang, who
commentated: "It was a real delight to deliver these nappies in
person to the special care baby unit at Southend Hospital, giving
the opportunity to see where some of our nappies will be in action
so to speak.
The donation of nappies is part of an initiative where Procter
and Gamble is committed to improving life for children in need
throughout the world and each year improves life for more than 50
million children in need.
