In 2013 in the UK, one in every 137 babies was either stillborn or died in the first 4 weeks of life

Here in N. Ireland, over 3 babies a week are stillborn or die in the first 4 weeks of life.

We support all bereaved parents who have lost their babies, before, during or shortly after birth.

Bonmarche Balloon Race

Bonmarche stores throughout Northern Ireland are hosting a fundraising event to support Sands NI, the Stillbirth & Neonatal Death Charity, who offer support to anyone affected by the death of a baby.


All Bonmarche stores & employees will be selling balloons at £1 each, which they will launch from the 18 stores across the province on Friday 8th February. The owners of the 18 balloons found furthest away from the starting point will win a cash prize.


BonMarche representative, Michelle Allen said "We will be encouraging all our employees & customers to take part in this event, which we hope will contribute significantly to Sands NI's much needed funds."
