The partners at Express Solicitors kindly donated £50.00 worth of raffle prizes to the SANDS (stillbirth and neonatal death) charity for its fundraising event which took part on the 12th April 2014.
The fundraising event was a ‘Bumble’ netball cup which included a netball tournament, a raffle, face painting, and a bake sale. The event managed to raise an impressive £1,108.61 for the SANDS charity.
Money raised previously by SANDS has helped to pay for a new ‘cold cot’ in North Manchester General Hospital. Cold cots are vital for bereaved parents who want to spend those very precious last moments with their baby. The funds raised from the ‘Bumble Cup’ event will go towards improving facilities to allow relatives of bereaved families to stay at the hospital as well as maintenance of the memorial garden and continued research into the causes of still birth and neonatal loss.
