Bournemouth Half Marathon for SANDS

Did you know that The Fertility Partnership support a charity picked by the staff every two years, and that not only does every clinic give £5 for every fresh IVF cycle they do, but the staff also do their own fundraising? Wessex Fertility’s Derek, Rosie & Jess have taken up the challenge of running the Bournemouth Half Marathon on 7th October 2018.

The death of a baby can affect anyone regardless of beliefs or background and sadly a family experiences this tragedy every 90 minutes in the UK. This means that every day in the UK 15 babies are stillborn, during or die shortly after birth. Sands, the stillbirth and neonatal death charity, exists to reduce the unacceptably high rate of stillbirth and neonatal deaths and to provide and improve the care bereaved parents and their families receive. We hope to raise as much as possible to help SANDS with their wonderful work.
