Grand daughter and great-niece Lilly-Grace sadly passed away and became a princess angle watching over her family.

In a way of saying thank you for the support Lilly-Grace’s family received from the staff at the Special Care Baby Unit, Donna and Kath have agreed to shave their hair off – very brave ladies.

Proud granddad grows a beard then shaves it off to raise funds for Tiny Lives.


Niamh and Roy with beard

Before – Niamh is happy with the way granddad looks.

When Roy Chapman granddad to Niamh who spent time on the Special Care Baby unit wanted to give something back to the unit, he wasn’t sure what to do so he decided to get rid of the hair on his face.

The family though they would only raise £100 so when they raised over £300 it was a great surprise.

A big thank you from everyone at Tiny Lives and all the Staff on the Special Care Baby Unit to everyone who supported Roy and thank you to Roy for making the brave decision.
