At Wynter's funeral we raised £318.50 for the Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Charity (SANDS)

Sands is the stillbirth and neonatal death charity. Founded in 1978, Sands exists to reduce the number of babies dying and to ensure that anyone affected by the death of a baby receives the best possible care and support for as long as they need it wherever they are in the UK.

Sands works to reduce the number of babies dying and to better understand the causes of baby deaths. Sands works with governments and other organisations to drive change and raise awareness of the issues relating to baby loss.

Sands provides bereavement support services at both a local and national level. These include the Sands Freephone helpline, mobile app, online community, family support packs, memory boxes and over 100 regional support groups run by trained befrienders.

Sands works to improve bereavement care available to parents and families, by offering a range of training programmes and resources and working in partnership with health care professionals, trusts and health boards.











September 2019 (Wynter's Wish)


Your very kind donations have absolutely made a real difference and we were able to secure funding for two 'cold cots' which with the support of the charity Abigail's footsteps will be donated to Nottingham City Hospital and Chesterfield Hospital. The ‘cold cot’ is a piece of equipment designed to keep a baby’s body cool after its death, allowing parents and families more time to create memories and as a result, in some small way help reduce the stress of losing a child so early in its life by giving families the chance to grieve and say goodbye in their own time
