Imagine if you lose a baby, whether this be through neonatal loss or stillbirth. Once you have said your last goodbyes, you have no other memories. There are no memory boxes available to keep what treasured memories you have. The boxes we provide are there so that you will be able to remember your little ones for years to come.

There are around 3600 stillbirths every year in the United Kingdom

In 2011 there were 3025 infant deaths (deaths under 1 year old) in England and Wales this being at a rate of 4.3 deaths per 1000 live births. There were 3077 in 2010 and 7021 in 1981.

Yearly, this means that 6625 babies lose life throughout the U.K.

We aim to supply as many neonatal units throughout the U.K. that currently do not have any form of these keepsake boxes.

Each box contains a hand and foot print cast kit so that a mould of the child’s hand and foot will be able to be made.  2 identical teddies one to remain with the child and the other for the parents.  There is a Angel candle where it can be lit every year on the child’s birthday, a small plastic bag within a keepsake bag for a lock of the child’s hair.  A star on a chain for the mother to wear (we added this to the box as we told our son his sister was a big star in the sky), in the hands of angels key ring.  there are also forget me not seeds that once planted will flower every year.  The last thing that is in the box are 2 blankets one a fleece one and a hand knitted one

It doesn't matter what you think you can or can't do, many people help us raise money.  As you can see from some of the things people have done, this can be anything.  It doesn't matter how much is raised, £1 or £1Million, every penny goes towards helping others.
