Business Partnerships

  • Could we be your charity of the year?
  • Could you hold a one-off fundraising event for SiMBA?
  • Could we run a FREE presentation to you and your colleagues on how to support a bereaved parent returning to the workplace?

Losing a baby can happen to anyone and it affects not only the parents but friends / family members and colleagues. 

Your support is incredibly important to us. We want to make a partnership with you engaging, motivating and fun for all involved. We want to work with all you and your colleagues to raise awareness and offer support.


If you think we could work together then we would love to hear from you please contact Gillian Wells, Events & Communication Planner on 01368 860 141 or email events@simbacharity.org.uk

They purchase and recover cardboard, paper, plastics and provide security shredding services. Customers' material can be delivered in or collected dependent on volumes.

Business and personal recycling can be added to this skip, and by recycling with Smurfit Kappa you will be helping to raise vital funds for us.

Robert Murphy Foundation

The Robert Murphy Charity Foundation was established in 2013 in Roberts memory. Robert was an incredibly giving person, and the charity based in Stirling ensures that 100% of all monies raised are re-distributed back to those in need, in the Stirlingshire area and beyond. In addition each year the foundation have pledged to make an annual donation to the Cardiology Unit at Larbert Hospital (as Robert spent a great deal of time here before he passed away) and to SIMBA. We would like to thank the foundation for their continued support.
