Moy Park has announced a new charity partnership with Sands, the pregnancy and baby loss charity, to increase awareness of and raise funds for the charity’s work.
Sands works to save babies’ lives and ensure that, when a baby does die, anyone affected gets the support and care they need.
Over the next two years, Moy Park team members across the UK will support this vital work through fundraising activities including coffee mornings, sponsored walks, and quizzes, as well as raising awareness through Baby Loss Awareness Week in October.
Welcoming the new partnership, Kirsty Wilkins, HR & Performance Director at Moy Park said: “Pregnancy and baby loss affects so many of us both directly and indirectly. Currently in the UK, 13 families per day lose their baby before, during, or shortly after birth. For more than 40 years, Sands has been here for anyone affected by pregnancy and baby loss to offer understanding and comfort.”
To mark the company’s 80th anniversary, Moy Park will ask their employees to nominate 20 local charities and will surprise them with a £1,000 donation over the next few months.
