Scoo-B-Doo was established in 1982 by a small group of grateful parents, doctors and nurses. 

The registered charity supports the Neonatal Unit at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital in caring for sick and premature babies from Gloucestershire and beyond. From day one, the charity has been actively fundraising to provide equipment and essential items. Over 80% of the equipment used every day has been funded by Scoo-B-Doo, helping to ensure the babies are given the best possible care.

The Burleigh Travel team along with representatives from Bognor RFC and Oakmeadians RFC sold festival programmes accross three days of exciting festival rugby and ammassed a grand total of £700 which we were delighted to present to the fundraisers earlier this week.
