All families whose premature babies were cared for at three hospitals in Coventry and Warwickshire are invited to the annual graduates' party on 10 10 August 2013 along with their friends and relatives.
This year's summer garden party for families and their babies who were looked after by staff at the neo-natal unit at the University Hospital, Coventry, and the special care baby units at Nuneaton’s George Eliot Hospital and Warwick Hospital will take place on Saturday, 10 August 2013.
The summer fete will be held in the garden of the former social club at University Hospital between noon and 4pm.
There will be donkey rides, face-painting, Reiki, various stalls, psychic readings, hot dogs, raffle and tombola at the free event.
Reena Parmar, a neo-natal nurse at University Hospital said this is always a special day for staff and families:
"The graduates' party is a time of reflection and the nurses and consultants love to be able to meet up again with mums and dads and their babies.
Staff at the University Hospital, the George Eliot Hospital and Warwick Hospital carry out fantastic work on a daily basis and this is also a chance to thank them for their sterling efforts and for them to meet up again with the babies they cared for and their relatives.
We always want the graduates party to be great fun for mums, dads, brothers, sisters, grandparents, aunties and uncles and we always have a good turn-out.
This will be our eighth annual event and each year we have families we have helped over the last 12 months come along for the first time as well as those over the last eight years and it is lovely to see how the premature babies have grown-up.
As always, we have organised a range of activities to keep youngsters of all ages entertained as well as a few activities for the adults and we just hope the sun shines!"

We look forward to seeing you there!
