Cord Donations

Cord blood is still being thrown away on a daily basis because parents aren’t made aware that they can donate or the hospital simply doesn’t have the facilities to carry out the procedure.

Event Organising

As a charity we have organised and been involved in some fabulous events, days outs around the region and have some great things to be proud of. We also welcome any ideas for fundraisers you may have.

Money Donations

We rely almost entirely on the good will and charity of the general public, without them we wouldn’t be able to do what we do or help raise awareness of umbilical cord donations.

Did you know?

In 2013, 688,000 units of cord blood were thrown away in England and Wales

We need to work together to prevent this waste!
