Genie Supports The Sick Children’s Trust

TEAM GENIE support Cambridge bike ride
“TEAM GENIE”, from Genie CCTV Ltd is proud to support the work of The Sick Children’s Trust by participating in the forthcoming London to Cambridge bike ride on 25th July 2010. The idea is to raise as much money as possible for this important cause which provides “home from home” accommodation for families whose children are receiving hospital treatment for serious illness, often many miles from home.
The work of this charity was brought to the attention of Genie when one of their technical team member, Tekin Onbashi had to call on their help after his baby daughter who was born 5 weeks prematurely was rushed to hospital with breathing difficulties and had to be put on a ventilator. The Sick Children’s Trust helped immensely by providing free of charge accommodation which allowed Tek and his wife Debbie stay by Megan’s bedside whilst she was seriously ill.
Please read Megan’s story below which gives you an insight into the work of the Sick Children’s Trust;

Megan Sheniz Onbashi gave her parents a surprise when she was born 5 weeks early, in January 2010. Unfortunately because of the horrible cold snowy weather and all the coughs and colds going round, and being premature and tiny, she became life threateningly ill on a couple of occasions and needed to go into hospital to get some urgent help.
When Megan was only 6 weeks old, she had to spend time at Addenbrookes Hospital (Cambridge) in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) on a ventilator. The Sick Children’s Trust look after Acorn House – accommodation at the hospital where families can stay so that they can be close to their sick baby /child. Without a place like this many families would struggle at a time when they are already very distressed. The Sick Children’s Trust doesn’t charge families to stay at this accommodation and therefore require donations from the public to carry on providing this great service.  

“TEAM GENIE” is therefore trying to raise as much money as possible from their bike ride so they can give it to The Sick Children’s Trust and help other families stay close to their children.
