Construction recruitment firm Kingston Barnes has raised £15,000 for a new incubator for neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at St Michael's Hospital.

Costing £15,000, the new incubator features a heated lid, weighing scales and a family-friendly screen.

James Kingston, managing director of Kingston Barnes, said: “We are absolutely thrilled we have managed to raise £15,000 to purchase the much needed state-of-the-art incubator for St Michael’s.

“This has been a charity challenge very close to our hearts as many of our staff and family have had their children in the hospital and we have seen first-hand how vital an incubator can be in the life of premature babies and how much support it can bring to a family.

“It’s taken us over a year to raise the funds for the incubator and our team have come up with all sorts of ideas and challenges to inspire the donations such as a charity golf day, a 78,000 metre rowing challenge (the length of the English Channel), Tough Mudder, two charity football tournaments, and a 24 hour Relay Challenge around Queens Square!

“It is such a huge achievement for us and the whole team have got involved to raise the total amount needed. We’ve really enjoyed the process and had some fun too. We’d like to thank everyone who supported us along the way and we look forward to the next challenge.”
