Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People.
Bring love, smiles and laughter to our children’s lives. Just like everyone else, our children need a place to play, laugh and love life. A place where they and their families are cared for and supported. Welcome to Rainbows, the East Midlands’ hospice for children and young people. Sadly, some children simply don’t live long enough. Since 1994 we’ve opened our doors and hearts to those children and the people who love them most. And now more than ever, we need your help to keep on bringing hope and happiness to our children and families. As the East Midlands’ only hospice for children and young people, Rainbows is a place where life limited children and their families can take a break from life’s worries and heartaches. Our incredible team of people helps relieve symptoms, improve quality of life, support parents and siblings through the darkest of bereavements and care for children until the end. From carers to counsellors, medical professionals to palliative care specialists. It’s our people that are at the heart of Rainbows. It costs Rainbows £3.8 million each year to provide care for life-limited children. We receive very little government funding, so any support you give is vital. Dig deep as any amount can make a huge difference.
Sands, the stillbirth and neonatal death charity
The death of a baby before, during or shortly after birth is a devastating experience with lifelong consequences for the whole family. Sadly, each year thousands of families face such heartache, with 15 babies dying every single day. Although the UK’s stillbirth rate has fallen slightly in recent years, it remains unacceptably high. We work to support bereaved families and improve the care they receive as well as fund vital research to prevent more families suffering the loss of their precious baby. To do this, we rely on your generosity and your help is greatly appreciated.
Kicks Count
Kicks Count want to empower Mums with knowledge and confidence during their pregnancy. We want to raise awareness of the importance of baby's movements as an indicator of a baby's wellbeing and reduce the UK's current stillbirth rate which is 33rd out of 35 similar income countries. More babies die in the womb or in the first week of life than from cot death, meningitis and road deaths combined! Only 10% of these are caused by a fatal congenital abnormality so there is the potential to save 90% of these babies. A change in fetal movement can be an indicator the baby is struggling in the womb, so by encouraging more mums to contact their midwife if they notice a change in their baby's regular pattern, at risk babies can be identified and delivered before its too late.

Mylo's Fund

Fundraisers: 
Nicola Walmsley, William Hardy

My page: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/mylosfund


A fund in memory of our gorgeous baby boy Mylo Mylo's fund will be raising money to support charities that are helping us though our difficult journey. Various events will take place to raise funds for much needed awareness and future research into stillbirth.

Our son Mylo was sadly stillborn in September 2012. No cause was ever found for his death. We have been well supported by various charities since this tragic event rocked our family. It is now our turn, with Mylo’s help, to return a huge thank you.

SANDS UK:
... 'Almost one in every 100 births in the UK results in the stillbirth or death of a baby in the early weeks of life. We believe this number of deaths is too high and that more can and should be done to reduce these tragic deaths.'

Mylo's fund is a long term project with an aim to raise funds for vital research for SANDS, and other stillbirth charities, whilst hopefully raising awareness and giving expectant parents the information that could save their child’s life.
