Support

BIBS funds a professional Family Support Practitioner that runs drop-in sessions three times a week. We also operate a Parent Support evening once a week run by volunteer former Buscot parents.

Facilities

BIBS manages and refurbishes parent and family facilities on the ward such as a family lounge and overnight accomodation.

Awareness

BIBS aims to raise awareness of the issues faced by parents and babies on the unit. We work with the hospital and other organisations to make this most stressful of journeys as smooth as possible.

Equipment

BIBS fundraises to help supply the latest technology and equipment that will aid in the care and development of babies on Buscot Ward.

Happy first birthday to Milo from everyone at BIBS! Please like and comment to send him your own birthday wishes too.

We think he might be our youngest ever fundraiser - but get in touch if you know otherwise!!

Here he is pictured aged 7 months (!!) taking part in the 'Run for Chocolate' to raise money for BIBS in March with his fabulous mummy Sally Green. He is also pictured on Buscot Ward, and more recently having a whale of a time on a tractor!

Dad, Anthony Green, tells us,

"Milo spent his first few days in Buscot, without their help he wouldn't be celebrating his 1st birthday.

His lungs were a little premature, so he spent his first 5 days in Buscot, before joining his Mum on Iffley ward, where he self tanned under blue lights to clear his jaundice and had his first bath. He's still quite small, but he's a very happy little man, who spends most of his energy bouncing, waving, clapping and chasing the cat. Swimming is his favourite hobby."

The sun came out in force on Sunday for a fabulous Family Fun Day hosted by our friends at Mirror, Mirror Hair and Beauty on Caversham Park Village.

The day was a huge success, raising in excess of £2,000 with the official total still being tallied now!! There was a great turnout, and a jubilant atmosphere. Many people came by and said hello to the BIBS team and shared their own experiences of the life-saving and life-changing work done on Buscot Ward.

Thank you to everyone who helped plan the day, donated raffle prizes and shared their profits - and of course to the community for coming together in aid of our wonderful cause!
