Family raise thousands for Special Care Baby Unit at Glangwili Hospital

Katie and Jonathan Thomas have raised a fantastic £2,080 for the Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) at Glangwili Hospital.

Katie and Jonathan organised a Tenby Spectacular Raffle with wonderful prizes in support of the unit.


Katie and Jonathan’s son, Ronnie, spent two weeks at SCBU when he was born. The pair wanted to raise funds as a thank you for the exceptional care he received.


Katie said: “Ronnie was born four weeks early and was unresponsive. He spent his first Christmas in the Special Care Baby Unit.


“We were so grateful for the care that Ronnie received at the unit. We felt we needed to do something to show our appreciation.


“We would like to say thank you to everyone who supported us in raising the money, whether it was buying or helping sell tickets for our raffle. We couldn’t have raised such a fantastic amount without you.


“We would also like to say a big thank you to all the staff working within the unit. Ronnie wouldn’t be with us today if it wasn’t for you. You are all truly amazing.”


Sandra Pengram, Special Care Baby Unit Manager, said: “We are so grateful for this generous donation to the Special Care Baby Unit. It will enable us to provide services and activities over and above what the NHS can normally provide.


“It will make such a positive difference to experience of our patients and their families. A huge thank you from us all!”


Nicola Llewelyn, Head of Hywel Dda Health Charities, the official charity of Hywel Dda University Health Board, said: “We want to say a huge thank you to Katie and Jonathan for their incredible fundraising for SCBU.


“The support of our local communities enables us to provide services over and above what the NHS can provide in the three counties of Hywel Dda and we are extremely grateful for every donation we receive.”
