After giving birth prematurely to both her children, Charlotte at 33 weeks in 2014 and Oscar at just 26 weeks in 2015, Mum Debbie Thwaites came up with an innovative idea to help other parents.

“Whilst in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) I noticed a need for refreshments for parents, as premature babies arrive so unexpectedly. So through my local Hillsong Church in Guildford (who supported me with food hampers during our time in NICU) we decided to set up a snack bar for other parents in the same situation. It’s been such a success that the group are now rolling out the initiative at other hospitals.
