Samuel Davis officially opened the Baby Beat’s Little Ted’s Room, with his parents Spencer and contractors from AMEON Ltd, D&G Builders, FWP and Red Accoustics in 2015.
A major fund-raising drive to soundproof all rooms in the delivery suite at Royal Preston Hospital has broken past the half way barrier. Back in 2015, Spencer Davis and Rachael Marsden, of Euxton, launched Little Ted’s Room with the help of the hospital’s Baby Beat Appeal. After Rachael, 32, suffered a stillbirth and had to hear other new-born babies’ cries in the delivery suite, she wanted to prevent other parents going through the same trauma. The mammoth fund-raising mission, in honour of their son Thomas Edward, saw them collect £27,000 needed for the first two rooms which were refurbished in the Sharoe Green delivery suite by Christmas 2015. Two years on, the campaign has amassed more than £50,000, which will fund eight more rooms to be soundproofed.
