Lord Mayor's chosen charity

​The Lord Mayor of Cardiff’s chosen charity for 2018/19 is the Noah’s Ark Charity who support the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital for Wales in providing world class care, helping to ensure the best outcome and experience possible for children and their families.

Every year 73,000 children receive specialist and life-saving treatment at our nation’s children’s hospital. Having raised more than £20 million to build and equip the hospital, today the Noah’s Ark Charity continues to work hand in hand with the NHS, providing funding for the most up to date equipment and facilities. They also fund support services for families like the play specialist team, who help children be children, despite the difficulties they are facing.

As part of their ongoing commitment to helping ensure the best specialist care possible for children, the charity recently launched the Noah’s Ark Tiny Lives Appeal with the aim of raising £1 million for the neonatal unit at the University Hospital of Wales. The money raised by the Lord Mayor during the campaign will be spent on specialist life-saving equipment like ventilators, which help premature or critically ill babies to breathe. 

Edith was born at 23 weeks of pregnancy, weighing just 580 grams. Despite being given very slim odds of survival she was well enough to leave intensive care on the neonatal unit at 73 days old.
