We were privileged enough to be approached by Leicestershire & Rutland Sands - stillbirth and neonatal death charity. They introduced to us all of the great work that the charity do and their Autumn Ball.
Being a family run business and truly understanding the value of family we wanted to support them by donating one of our famous Farmer & Carlisle bears for their charity auction.
Leicester Sands is a voluntary group of parents who have all experienced the death of a baby either during pregnancy or soon after birth. The exact details of their losses vary widely, however, they all share the common experience of grieving for their children and trying to find a way to live with their loss. They are not a professional health team or counsellors but parents who know how devastating the death of a child can be.
