Lauren and Andrew were supported by us at Chestnut Houses after the birth of their identical triplet boys, Ted, Tom, and Ralphy, in February 2014. Sadly Ralphy didn’t make it and died in his parents’ arms, but Ted and Tom are now four years old. Lauren and Andrew are taking on the Prudential Ride London-Surrey 100 miles cycle challenge to raise £30 for every night Ralphy was in hospital, £1,470.

We supported Rhiannon and Zak in Chestnut House for three weeks when their daughter Luna was recovering from necrotising enterocolitis.. Luna has since battled pneumonia, been declared profoundly deaf and had stoma reversal surgery at Addenbrooke’s Hospital. When the family returned to Cambridge for Luna’s second operation, Rhiannon and Zak stayed with us again at Acorn House.
