Get involved

Fundraising is key to our existence – our wonderful supporters are incredibly generous and their hard work has helped the charity grow but we always need funds so that we can continue our work of bringing comfort after pregnancy and baby loss.

There are lots of ways you can raise funds:

Direct donations – either make a one-off payment or set up a monthly direct debit via our Virgin Money Giving or BT MyDonate pages. £10 pays for us to give one teddy to a family; £175 funds an awareness training programme for hospital staff.

Fundraising event – hold a cake sale, have a coffee morning, do a car boot sale, sponsored swim, cycle, run, skydive.

In memory pages – create a page on an online donation site in memory of a life lost too soon.

Help from employers – Ask your employer if they are able to match fund any money your raise.

Gift Aid – Don’t forget to Gift Aid, a scheme enabling registered charities to reclaim tax on a donation made by a UK taxpayer, effectively increasing the amount of the donation.

A Will – A Will is a legal declaration by which a person names one or more persons to manage his or her estate and provides for the distribution of his or her property at death. Remembering us in a Will would be greatly appreciated.
