SiMBA Simpsons Memory Box Appeal
SiMBA is here to make a difference. To honour babies who have died, been stillborn or miscarried. To help gather timeless memories. It wasn’t so long ago that when a baby died it was taken away, no touch, no cuddles, no time memories. SiMBA is about memories. We help you to gather precious items for your Memory Box which we provide. We understand the importance of spending time with your baby in our Family Room. Adding a leaf on a Tree of Tranquillity shows that you are not alone in your loss, and acts as a place to remember and reflect. We with hospital staff through study days, drop in sessions and one to one's to enhance the care for the parents in their care. Our aim is to supply the precious Memory Boxes to every Maternity Unit in who wants them; to provide a Family room in every Maternity Unit where possible and to provide a Tree of Tranquillity in every Maternity district as a symbol of remembrance to babies and to show parents that they are not alone. Charity Trustees: Thomas Waterson, Jenni Morris, Tracey O'Connor, Matt O'Connor, Susan Burns, Andrea Nye

Haydon Kennan Foundation's fundraising page

Kirsty Burzynski and Kimberley Fraser are participating in a 132ft (40m) Bungee Jump at Killiecrankie Bridge in Perth, Summer 2017!!! Amazing bravery from these 2 ladies...please give generously!! Every single penny matters, there are not enough words to thank these ladies, and everyone that donated and supports Haydon to give a Gift to others.

To date...over 3000 families have received a 'Gift from Haydon'.  There are no words to describe the value for bereaved families. Thank you for your generosity and support.

Thank you so so much in advance for any donations that are made - big or small...all donations go towards the creation of hand and foot casts, the creation of irreplaceable memorial keepsakes for bereaved families!  We work in Partnership with SiMBA and The Lola Commons Fund where the sole focus is supporting parents at the hardest of times and beyond.

Thank you so much for helping us to help Haydon!

to read more about Haydon and his legacy...

The Haydon Kennan Foundation was created in memory of Haydon Kennan, who became an angel at the age of 15 weeks and 2 days.  Haydon was extremely couragious in his battle, and touched the hearts of so many people, and continues to do so.

21/12/11 - 06/04/12

Haydon's parents set up Haydon's memorial fund to fundraise specifically for these much needed and precious memorial keepsakes, knowing full well their value.  Working along with the SiMBA Charity, and Yorkhill Children's Foundation, Haydon's parents, friends, family and community, fundraise regularly to raise enough money to be able to provide these precious keepsakes to bereaved parents.  These aren't a standard 'gift' for bereaved parents, but Haydon is making this happen long term, not only within these hospitals, but in the wider hospital community ... 192 in Britain so far!!

We cannot stress their value, and ask for people to give generously for this cause.

To date - almost £19,000 has been raised in Haydon's name.  lets keep this happening so that Haydon can provide a Gift to families at the most difficult of times.

Thank you.
