Thank you for visiting our donations page. In April, Nathan and I are taking part in the Kicks Count Step-tacular to raise money for the Kicks Count charity which raises awareness of keeping track of your baby's movements to aim to prevent stillbirth. The challenge involves our completing at least 10,000 steps every day between Monday 8th April and Sunday 21st April. Although we have made our donation by the entrance fee for the event, we thought others may also wish to give a donation to this fantastic charity.

Sadly, stillbirth isn’t as rare as many people think. The UK has the 3rd highest stillbirth rate in the developed world. 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.

It’s a great cause, and your donation will help them achieve even more. Donating is easy, quick and secure.

Please share with friends and family on Facebook and Twitter – and elsewhere – so we can reach our target and together we can help Kicks Count do more. Thank you!
