Huge thanks to BRIT Insurance who have awarded Sands an incredible donation of £10,000.
We were nominated to receive this donation by BRIT employee Jackie Clarke, in memory of her granddaughter Ruby who was stillborn in December 2018.
Jackie said: "The loss of our beloved Ruby has left a hole in all of our hearts but without the support of our bereavement midwife and Sands we would not be able to get through this terrible time. Their support is invaluable and we hope this donation can go to help other parents and families like it has for us."
BRIT is a global specialty insurer and re-insurer headquartered in London with offices worldwide. They underwrite complex risks such as ships, satellites, racehorses and oil rigs. Each year they ask employees to nominate a charity important to them and then select 10 randomly.
Sands was one of the lucky recipients this year.
Susy Gould-Obiora, Senior Corporate Fundraiser at Sands, said: "We are incredible grateful to BRIT Insurance for this generous gift. The death of a baby can affect anyone from any background and someone you know will have been affected by baby loss. It is vitally important that companies and employers support Sands to help raise awareness of this issue and support our crucial work. Their donation will ensure we can continue to support anyone affected by the death of a baby and fund vital research to help save babies lives.’’
