Steps for Sienna

Fundraising for Mid & South Essex Hospitals Charity
In memory of Sienna Maslen
We raise additional funds to help make a difference for our patients.


Our Message’

We have created ‘Steps for Sienna’ as a way for us to celebrate the first birthday of our baby daughter, Sienna Rae Lilian Maslen.

We sadly lost Sienna on 19th March 2020, born just one day before her due date, and although this will forever remain the most difficult time in our life’s we would like for Sienna’s birthday to be a celebration of our beautiful daughter, who lives forever in all our hearts.

We are raising money for The Blossom Suite at Broomfield Hospital which is a bereavement room offered to families during and after baby loss alongside an amazing team of people.  However, this is no ordinary room as it is filled with so many kind and thoughtful items and ideas to support families at this most difficult time and also allow them to create beautiful memories with their babies, that will last a lifetime.

We are so thankful that you have chosen to fundraise on behalf of our daughter Sienna and we cannot wait to celebrate reaching our goal with you for her first birthday and make her proud.

With love and thanks

Julie, Steven  Sienna ❤



18th Feb – 18th March 2021

To celebrate our daughter Sienna’s first birthday we want to put her on the Top Of The World

The challenge is for us as a group to walk enough steps to travel from Rayleigh to the North Pole and back , which is huge 5,304 miles or 10.6 million steps in the space of four weeks.  We will ask each fundraiser or team to pledge the number of miles or steps that they will walk in four weeks and raise donations through sponsorship for the challenge. 

We are suggesting that the miles pledged are one of the following four options but if you feel you can give more then please go ahead, every step will help us reach our goal.  

50 miles = 100,000 total steps (3,571 steps per day)

100 miles = 200,000 total steps (7,142 steps per day)

150 miles = 300,000 total steps (10,714 steps per day)

200 miles = 400,000 total steps (14,285 steps per day)

The challenge will end on 18th March 2021 with a group walk at 11.00am, this will be in line with the current government guidelines for group meetings.

In order to celebrate both Sienna’s birthday and hopefully successfully completing our challenge we would like for everyone to release their ‘Steps for Sienna’ balloons at 1.00pm on 19th March 2021.
