Story

I am fundraising to support SANDS and the baby bereavement suite at Stepping Hill hospital. Both of these vital causes support parents and families who have experienced the tragic loss of a baby.
In February 2013 myself and my parter Oliver tragically lost our baby boy Declan 4 and a half months into my pregnancy. I had many complications and sadly our strong little fighter grew his angel wings. The baby bereavement suite at Stepping Hill Hospital was invaluable for us. There they helped us through those first few terrible days after our loss, provided a baby memorial box and the support from the specially trained bereavement midwife Carol was amazing. They need donations to help to continue to provide the service and help others who find themselves in these tragic circumstances. They also helped us to understand what happened next and provide a funeral if that is the parents wish. They make the most awful experience slightly more bearable. The SANDS charity help parents through the loss of a baby too. They provide a helpline to support people when they need it and support groups locally. Both of these causes rely on donations. We are fundraising to share the money between both of these causes. We are also running a raffle and looking for any prize donations big or small. Every penny helps these services. Both of them amazing in their own right and we couldnt have got through our loss without them. We now want to give back to these charities to help others like they helped us.

    Thank you again to everyone who has supported us in raising money for these amazing causes. Please keep going to help us get to the £500 we need. Nobody ever thinks that it will happen to them but ever so sadly it does, it happened to us. SANDS, Sandalwood and the amazing bereavement team do an amazing job of making the worst time in someone's life slightly more bearable. But, without these vital funds they may not always be there. Please keep donating and sharing. Every penny makes such a difference. Thank you, Suzann and Oliver x

    Thank you so much for the very kind donations already. I have spoke with Carole Beales the bereavement midwife from Sandalwood bereavement suite at Stepping Hill who is very grateful for the fundraising. The suite are in desperate need of hotel grade bed linen, cushions and throws to make the room feel less like a hospital and more of a home feel. It needs to be hotel standard so it withholds the very hot washes it will go through. Thank you so much and please keep sharing the page.
