Merryhatton Charity of the Year

As a local garden centre it is important for us to have an active role in the community, supporting local charities and community groups where we can. The main focus of our community support is through our Charity of the year Scheme. This allows us to focus all our fundraising efforts on one local charity year, making the support we can offer as effective as possible.

We are delighted to introduce SiMBA as our Charity of the Year 2017! We look forward to working with them to raise awareness of their work, and plenty of fundraising, to help with the incredible work they do in our community and further afield.

Some information from SiMBA about what they do and how they help families suffering the devastating lost of a baby during pregnancy or the neonatal period;

SiMBA responds to the needs of those affected by the loss of a baby

By gifting our Memory Boxes and Haydon Kennan Foundation Clay Imprint Kits to hospitals across the UK we help to create irreplaceable memories of the time families have to spend with their baby

Working with the Lola Commons fund for SiMBA we create Family Rooms in hospitals providing a homely setting encouraging precious time together.

We Install Trees of Tranquillity, life sized copper sculptures where each leaf is engraved with a message to remember a baby, giving a peaceful place to reflect

Training hospital staff to enhance the bereavement services that are available

Holding monthly drop in support groups which anyone affected by the loss of a baby can attend, each run by volunteer facilitators trained by Child Bereavement UK

Offering on-line support via our closed facebook pages – people can chat in a safe environment at any time of day

We are a local charity, founded in Bonnyrigg, now working nationally. With the help and support of fundraisers, donators and companies we can continued to grow.
