Thanks for visiting the amazing #TeamSands-EastLondon team's fundraising page raising money in support of the East London Sands Whipps Cross University Hospital Cold Cot Project.

East London Sands is fundraising to provide one of our local hospitals, Whipps Cross University Hospital, with a new Demeva Cold Cot.

Cuddle-Cot

The Demeva Cold Cot system cools baby and can be placed by a mother’s bedside, allowing families to stay with their baby before being moved to the mortuary and is in use in thousands of hospitals around the world.

The time spent with a baby after a stillbirth or neonatal death allows the family to form an important bond with their baby. A Cold Cot can help in preserving a baby while mothers recover from the delivery and prepare for the valuable moments spent with their child. Whether parents and relatives spend time changing a nappy, dressing the baby, taking photographs or simply staying close by, a Cold Cot will give the opportunity to keep their baby next to them and create memories of their time together, which in turn can help families to cope with their loss.

 

#TeamSands-EastLondon are absolutely committed to raising the money needed for this really important project. You'll see our team fundraising target on the right. Your kind donation, however small, can really help and will make such a difference to families, giving them more time to remember their babies. Thank you so much.

All the funds raised will be designated for the purpose of the East London Sands Whipps Cross Hospital Cold Cot Project. Once this project is fully funded and its £2,364 target reached, any excess will be spent where the need is greatest, helping Sands to continue to deliver its vital services to support anyone affected by the death of a baby, to improve the bereavement care received by parents and families, and to promote research to reduce the number of babies dying.
