Who we are:

Friends of PICU is a registered charity that was set up in 2006 by parents of children who have been cared for on the Children’s Intensive Care Unit at Southampton University Hospital, and nursing staff from the PICU. Friends of PICU aims to support the children and their families by providing vital equipment and services that are not always provided by the statutory authorities.

What we do:

Friends of PICU contribute to every part of the specialist care – no patient will pass through PICU without being helped in some way by equipment donated, the additional nursing training and education that the charity pays for, and the caring and considerate environment they have helped to create. All emergency patients that are retrieved by ambulance travel in a dedicated ambulance donated by FoPICU and any parent able to stay in on-site accommodation near to their child does so because FoPICU supports and maintains it.


Why we need you:

The charity is fundraising to renovate the in-hospital PICU parent and family accommodation.   Parents and families deal with enormous stress when having a child in hospital, let alone worrying about where they might stay and how they will care for other children within their family.   Providing the on-site accommodation, kitchen and waiting areas provides a sanctuary and lifeline to families.   Parents are able to spend precious time, gathering their thoughts, resting their heads for some sleep, making refreshments, talking with their family, or spending time with their other children, knowing they are close to their child.  The family area is in desperate need of improvement and is the charity’s main project – to raise enough money to renovate this area, in addition to supporting other requests from the hospital.


Some of the charities that we work with have designated charity days booked with us – other charities we work with on an ad hoc basis but whichever charity you want to skydive for you can do it with GoSkydive.


Book individually or as a group with just a £50 deposit per person.We’ll contact your charity on your behalf if you book 10 or more places. If you have a charity group of 20 or more we’ll give you a free skydive to auction off to raise more money for your cause.


OK you’re all set – now you just need to reach your fundraising target. Set up your online giving page and regularly publish the link out on your social media. We’ve got a few fundraising tips below to help you along the way.
