Perfect Match for Our Kids

Sat, Jun 30th, 2018 9:41 am | |

Currently Our Kids is raising funds for two new Cosytherm Infant Warming Cots priced at $7,500 each. Morgans Finanicial Northern Rivers have pledged to match the community's donation up to a combined total of $7,500.

"The Cosytherm Cots are a unique way for babies to be kept safely warm as they grow. The addition of these cots to the nursery will mean many of the babies can be closer to their mothers, taken out of the humidicribs when they are still just 1.8 kg in weight, which is an excellent outcome for our babies" said Dr Chris Ingall, local Paediatrician and founder of Our Kids.

"With the warmth these cots provide, the babies will put on weight and go home just that little bit sooner. These cots are used in many of the large tertiary hospitals and their addition to Lismore would make a difference locally to the babies in our care" Dr Ingall said.

Morgans have been supporting of Our Kids for over 4 years, being the naming partner of the Winter Ball and given over $30,000 to help support the work of Our Kids.

The quickest team to complete all the challenges wins the Samson Title. With the proceeds from the day going to Our Kids it is sure to be a great day for both spectators and competitors.
