Bake for Sands

You may have been honing your baking skills whilst in lockdown. Perhaps you've perfected the perfect banana bread loaf or created the most wonderful chocolate chip cookies. Now is the time rise to the occasion and bake a difference for Sands at the same time.


Whether bread, cookies or cakes are your thing, doughnut just sit there! Raise some dough for Sands. Further ideas can be found here or sign up and join us below


Walk with Us

Together we can support the NHS staff step by step. 

In a time where many of us feel isolated and are social distancing from loved ones, we want to bring people together though Walk with Us. Help us to ensure we support all staff working in hospitals during this difficult time by equipping them with the confidence and skills to care for families when the worst happens. Everyday these staff are walking the corridors and wards of the hospitals, walking into waiting rooms worrying that they won’t know what to say, walking into their homes struggling to cope.

Please Walk with Us so we can support them and be there every step when they need us!

Saving Pennies, Saving Lives

With most of Sands fundraising activities suspended, we need your help more than ever. As an act of kindness this spring could you donate a saving that you have made to Sands, so that we can continue to support families who need our services?

Show an act of kindness

Are you saving money on your morning travel, cinema trips, or your first coffee of the day? Have you recently received a refund for an event that is no longer taking place and would like to do something positive with it? Why not set up a virtual collection pot and donate your saving to Sands?

 It may be that you haven’t made any savings yet but would like to do so over the next month. You could give up alcohol, chocolate or meat and donate the saving.

Whatever you do, no matter how big or small, we appreciate every penny. The pennies really do add up.
