When Samuel became very ill at just 4 days old, he and his family found themselves in the neonatal unit here at East Surrey, with Samuel facing suspected meningitis. 

Samuel’s mum and dad, Sarah and Nathan, kindly shared their story with us in this video (along with some interjections from Samuel himself, now aged 2), for which we are hugely grateful. 

With your help we will go further for families like Samuel’s.  

Sarah and Nathan took part in Run Reigate to raise funds for Olive’s Appeal. Donations will help provide additional equipment including top of the range neonatal incubators, which enhance the comfort of babies, and allow easier contact between mums & dads and the baby, alongside helping to create comfortable family rooms which provide vital rest for those who stay in the unit.Thank you for supporting my running, and our local hospital.
