Check out what we've been up to...

BGH received an emergency call from the Royal Children's Hospital to assist a baby and family in need. Even though we are technically closed we just felt the need to help out.

We have been able to provide assistance because of the generosity of many but in particular the grant we received from Bendigo Bank East Ivanhoe and Heidelberg.

This little baby was born at 31 weeks under 1 kg has been in RCH for 2 months. He has had surgery, his legs have not formed properly and hence the need for a special Britax capsule. He is a little fighter but has a long way to go.

Our next task is to find a pram that fits this special capsule.

Wishing this family and all the families in need a brighter 2017
