In October 2019, Wasps Legends charity gifted a grant of £2,500 to Liverpool Women’s Hospital. Peter Scrivener nominated this Charity on behalf of Laura and Adam Quail.
Through this donation, Wasp’s legends were able to help the Quail family achieve their ambition. They wanted to purchase equipment that helps educate parents whose children have heart defects. The kit helps support the parents through their journey on the Fetal Medicine Unit at Liverpool Women’s Hospital.
A quote from Laura and Adam Quail:
“We are so pleased to be able to present this cheque to the fetal medicine team at Liverpool Women’s Hospital. We are thrilled that the hospital has been able to buy a particular piece of equipment that they have wanted for some time but could not do so due to budget restrictions.
We found out during my pregnancy that our baby had a hole in his diaphragm that meant his intestines were squashing his lung and heart. It was a terrifying time for us. The team at LFMU were truly gifted, not just medically but also pastorally and understandably; we will be forever in their debt. After delivery at the Women’s, our son was transferred to Alder Hey, where he had an operation. He is now one and doing well.
It is particularly poignant that this equipment helps parents understand their unborn child’s defects and how they might be corrected. We know how much any reassurance and help in understanding the nature of the problem helps at such a worrying time.
We want to thank all of our family, friends and Wasps Legends from the bottom of our hearts for helping us to raise this money to show our immense appreciation for everything LFMU did for our family.”
At Wasps Legends, we are proud to have supported Laura and Adam Quail with their fundraising efforts and helped achieve their goal. We are also happy to assist Liverpool Women’s Hospital in providing this vital service for their families.
