Charity Registration No. 1112065

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

On 4th December 2018 our beautiful son, Isaac, grew his wings too soon due to an overwhelming group B strep infection at birth. We didn't know anything about Group B Strep until Isaac had died. 40% of the population carry Group B Strep in their bodies. Group B Strep is not routinely tested for in pregnant women in the UK - this is what we want to change as our son could be here today for a simple test. 

1 baby per week dies because of this.

The test costs just £35 privately.

We have currently raised over £1400 through the funeral directors donations page but that is only staying accessible for a few weeks after Isaac's funeral.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
