Stephen Groves Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. I’m raising money for Kicks Count because having had several friends experience the heartache and sorrow of a stillbirth, I realise that this is still far too common a problem which affects far too many people. I’m challenging myself to complete the Prudential London Ride100 (cycle 100 miles in less than 8 hours) in order to raise money for Kicks Count so that I can help support them in their fight to reduce stillbirth rates and change this situation for other families in the future.

Things are changing, but there is more to be done. The latest figures released by the Office of National Statistics in July 2018 showed that 2017 had the lowest stillbirth rate since records began. Raising awareness of baby's movements IS making a difference! As a charity dedicated to reducing stillbirth and neonatal death, Kicks Count need help to continue raising awareness and to save more babies lives.

The money you help me raise will go directly to the “Sponsor a Midwife” cause within Kicks Count, whereby the information, support and guidance provided by Kicks Count is put in the hands of midwives so that they can educate “soon to be” parents directly about how to check for the health of their baby.

Donating is easy, quick and secure so please sign up now, before you do anything else, and then share with friends and family on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, and elsewhere, so I can reach my target and together we can help Kicks Count do more.

Thank you for your kindness and support – it’ll be a great inspiration for me on the day!
