We can't function without the incredible efforts of our volunteer fundraisers. 

There are so many ways you can involved and do it for Sands! 

Walk a Mile in My Shoes

By walking a mile on your own, with your friends and family, colleagues, or total strangers, you can help support Sands to offer support to anyone affected by the death of a baby, improve the care that parents receive after the death of a baby, and to fund research to help save babies' lives.

Take a look at the dedicated Walk a Mile in My Shoes pack, or read here for more ideas


Skydive for Sands

Imagine you’re standing at an open doorway in an aircraft flying 10,000 feet. All you hear is the noise of the plane’s engines and the wind whipping round your ears. You look out and see distant fields; a river below…Imagine now leaning out of the doorway and letting go. You start whizzing through clouds. The canopy opens, and you float peacefully down to the ground!
