Bristol car supermarket Carbase has continued their incredible fundraising with a donation of £1,530 - taking their total to more than £5,000.

The donation will be used to fund a bilirubin monitor for the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at St Michael's Hospital. The equipment is used with newborn babies to check for neonatal jaundice. 

In addition to their generous donation, staff brought Easter eggs for patients at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children

Gordon Veale, general manager at Carbase, said: "Visiting the children's hospital and St Mike's and the great staff who work tirelessly there really brings home the wonderful work that they do, and we are extremely proud to be able to contribute funding for vital equipment.

"Well done to all of our staff for dipping in to their pockets in support of this brilliant charity, we are looking forward to raising even more in the near future!"

Gemma Jenkins, corporate fundraising officer, said: “All the team at Carbase have put fantastic effort into their fundraising so far and they have lots more activities planned.

 “It’s great to be able to show them round the hospitals so they can see exactly where the money they raise is being spent.  

 “Thanks to teams like Carbase we can continue to go above and beyond for Bristol’s hospitals and make a real difference to patients, their families and the staff who treat them.”
