Eliza & Ted is named after our very special eldest daughter, Eliza. Eliza was born very poorly back in 2017 and spent four long months in the neonatal unit at Evelina Childrens' hospital. During that time she was treated by world-class professionals who did everything possible to treat her (and her rare, undiagnosed condition). She spent nine months at home before she died suddenly at the start of 2019.
Whilst we can't bring Eliza back, we donate to the Evelina Childrens' Hospital charity with every gift box purchase in her memory. These donations help fund new state-of-the-art equipment, train staff and invest in innovative research programmes. Donations help the hospital provide life-saving support to more children and support to their families.
This year we are also organising a Christmas gift appeal for the wonderful staff on the neonatal unit. We spent our first Christmas in hospital with Eliza, and then a wonderful Christmas together at home. The memories from this Christmas are some of our favourites. More on this will be revealed shortly - we can't wait to tell you all about it!
So from all of us, thank you for helping to support a very special charity every time you buy a gift.
