SSCB Tree of Light
Until early Jan 2024
Shining a light on those babies who are not with us this Christmas
Christmas is normally a time for joy and for families to come together but for anyone who has lost a loved one it can be a time for reflection resulting in a mix of emotions. This is particularly true for families and their friends who have experienced the loss of a baby.
This Christmas Simpsons Special Care Babies (SSCB), the official charity supporting the neonatal unit at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, has come together with the fantastic team at Newhailes House to create a Tree of Light to remember those precious babies who brought so much joy but spent so little time with us, whether snuggled in the womb or in the days, weeks or years after their birth. We want to shine a light on them and provide a safe space where you can remember them this Christmas. We can think of nowhere better to house our tree than in the wonderful grounds of
Newhailes House, Newhailes Road, Musselburgh EH21 6RY
where you can grab a coffee, take a walk or let siblings play in Weehailes playpark whilst taking a moment to remember a loved one.
Dedicate in memory of someone special
With 1 in 8 babies now requiring the support of the neonatal unit, the funds raised will enable the purchase of state of the art equipment, advanced neonatal training for staff, and ongoing care for families who find themselves in the unit.
Collecting your bauble
The baubles will be lovingly looked after by the team at Newhailes House for those who wish to collect them beginning in the New Year.
We hope that you can join us on 24th November. If not, you can still support SSCB by purchasing a bauble during The Big Give week (see below) or our beautifully designed Christmas cards by visiting our SSCB shop.
Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas,
Your SSCB team
