We are delighted to announce that one of our Corporate Partners, Alliance Pharmaceuticals, are donating £30,000 to Sands. This is a tremendous amount of money, half of which was raised by Alliance employees, which was then matched by the company.

Alliance originally set out to hit a target of £12,500 for Sands. They upped this to £15,000 to mark our 15 babies a day initiative, which aims to raise awareness of the tragic fact that 15 babies die before, during or shortly after birth every day in the UK.

As you can see, they absolutely smashed their original target. Sands would like to extend our gratitude to all the employees at Alliance Pharmaceuticals who got behind us over the past weeks and months. They held numerous activities including a sponsored bike ride from their office in Paris to their UK HQ in Chippenham!

Alliance Pharmaceuticals CEO, John Dawson, said: This was an outstanding fundraising effort for a well deserving cause and an achievement for which we should all be justifiably proud. I have been absolutely amazed at the energies everyone has put into their fundraising, both personally and in teams, and right across the organisation. Equally amazing was the creativity that you applied to come up with so many different activities, ranging from the physical to the cerebral to the culinary.
