Since 2010 Brantano has participated in various staff fundraising events in-store to raise funds and awareness for Tommy’s whilst also having a little bit of fun at the same time. All Brantano stores get involved in various activities from dressing up to baking cakes, and even doing sponsored walks to the top of Mount Snowdon! So far, the store fundraising weekends have raised a total of £66,534.76 for Tommy’s.
How the money raised by Brantano helps save babies lives…Tommy’s work to fund medical research into the causes of premature births, stillbirths and miscarriages. They also provide research-based information about pregnancy health to medical professionals and parents-to-be. They fund three research centres in the UK, including St Thomas’ in London, St Mary’s in Manchester and the Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh. Each centre focuses its research efforts on different pregnancy issues. As well as conducting medical research into pregnancy issues, each centre runs clinics for women from across the UK who are at high risk of pregnancy complications. They are the only charity in the UK solely dedicated to finding treatments to prevent problems in pregnancy.
By 2030 Tommy’s want to halve the number of babies who die during pregnancy and birth - Brantano hope to help them achieve this. Tommy’s is working incredibly hard to change these statistics and they believe that every pregnancy deserves a happy ending.
