Club Charity

 

Every year the club donates profits from certain club events to a local charity. To date we have donated over £14,000 to various charities

In 2020 the chosen charity is Charlie's Challenge.

 As many of you know little Charlie Taphouse-Burt (Club members Jo Taphouse-Burt's son and Phil Taphouse's grandson) was born 7.5 weeks premature in December.

He was in the Musgrove Park SNICU (Somerset Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) until January where he received the most amazing care from a really dedicated team.

Like all things NHS, money is an issue.

They are short of Vapotherm units which assist premature and other sick babies to breathe - they have 5 of these but usually need more, or else they have to use older gadgets which have poorer outcomes.

Charlie was on one of these amazing machines, which breathed for him for several days until his lungs were better developed.

The Club has agreed to take on Charlie’s Challenge this year to give back a little to the unit and help them give life support to even more babies in need.
The cost is around £3,500 so please give what you can so we can meet Charlie's target.

Love Musgrove. Charity number 1059922
