1000 smiles for Southmead Maternity Unit

Wednesday, 1 February 2012

1000 smilesThe charity at Southmead Hospital is launching a search for pictures of 1,000 babies born at the maternity unit, for an ambitious new project.

The pictures will form a two metre wide mosaic called A Thousand Smiles to be displayed in the hospital’s baby unit. Each of the donated images will form part of a bigger picture celebrating the work at Southmead Maternity Unit.

Head of the Fundraising appeal Trevor Reid said, “This is a really exciting project for the Hospital. We would love to hear from anyone who has had a baby at Southmead and would like to be involved in the mosaic.”

“We would love photos from Southmead babies young and old! We are hoping that everyone who takes part will also make a £10 donation to the Mum’s the Word appeal, which is supporting the maternity unit at Southmead Hospital.”

Everyone who submits a picture will also receive a postcard size print of the mosaic. To be part of this amazing mosaic, simply visit www.mumsthewordappeal.org.uk to find out more information.
