Sands is delighted to announce a new partnership with Poco Nido, who are an award-winning British brand who make footwear for babies and children.

Poco Nido have launched their ‘SS19 collection’ which is their most exuberant range of mini shoes for babies and toddlers yet. The collection is inspired by circus and fairground fun and features eight new prints, plus eight plain mini shoe colours.

As part of their 2019 good causes pledge, Poco Nido will be donating £1 from the sale of every pair of Hot Air Balloon and Carnival print mini shoes sold, to the charity.

A sticker with the Sands logo will appear on the box of each pair of shoes sold to raise awareness of the charity and the partnership.

Catherine Lobley, Founder of Poco Nido, said: “We are very happy to have established a new partnership with Sands who support anyone affected by the death of a baby.

Creating our SS19 range of mini shoes was great fun. We cannot wait to show off our new creations and at the same time help raise awareness of Sands’ amazing work with our customers.”

Susy Gould-Obiora, our Senior Corporate and Trusts Fundraiser, said: “Our vision at Sands is for a world where fewer babies die, and anyone affected by the death of a baby receives the best care and support for as long as they need.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Poco Nido and, through the sale of these mini shoes, taking tiny steps to help save babies lives. Partnerships like this ensure that Sands can raise vital awareness around baby loss and continue to carry out its important work.”

Poco Nido’s Hot Air Balloon and Carnival print mini shoes are from £19 per pair and are available now in sizes ranging from UK 1-7 (Eur 17-24).
