Simpson's Memory Box Appeal

Responding to the needs of those affected by the loss of a baby.

To honour babies who have died, been stillborn or miscarried. To help gather timeless memories. It wasn’t so long ago that when a baby died it was taken away, no touch, no cuddles, no time together…………no memories.

SiMBA is about memories. We help you to gather precious items for your Memory Box which we provide. We understand the importance of spending time with your baby in our Family Room. Adding a leaf on a Tree of Tranquillity shows that you are not alone in your loss, and acts as a place to remember and reflect.

SCVO - The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations

SiMBA became a member of SCVO in 2010.

SCVO provides information and resources at the touch of a button via their web site. The charity can make the best of available resources from insurance to soft ware with discounted rates for members. SCVO also offers regular training courses at a reduced rate to members who include courses such as fundraising, governance, legal advice and management.
