As well as fundraising in aid of Aching Arms or arranging a donation, there are other ways in which you may like support our charity.

Aching Arms Merchandise

We sell a wide range of charity branded and non-branded merchandise. This includes our very special Aching Arms Dandelion bear which is a smaller version of our comfort bear and makes a perfect gift for siblings, grandparents, and family members. Dandelion bears are not donated in memory of a baby and do not carry a name label.

Every sale helps to support the work that we do and so please visit our Shop to view our range of products.

Give in Celebration

We’d love you to share your birthday, anniversary or other special occasion with us and celebrate with a Facebook Fundraiser in aid of Aching Arms. It doesn’t have to be instead of cards and cake – you can have those things too! Facebook Fundraisers are really easy to set up and when shared on your timeline, they let your family and friends know what really matters to you on your special day. Making a donation to Aching Arms is a wonderful way to celebrate with kindness and compassion. Gifts from your well-wishers will help us continue to offer comfort and support to bereaved families across the UK following the loss of their baby.

When setting up your Fundraiser, please ensure you select Aching Arms as your chosen charity. We ask that you please register your fundraiser with us too.

Register your Fundraiser

When your fundraiser ends, you might like to drop your friends a note to thank them for their generosity. Other than that, you don’t have to do anything further – Aching Arms will automatically receive the funds you’ve raised. Thank you for sharing your special day and helping us to help others.

Give in Memory

Leave a lasting legacy of love, by donating to Aching Arms in remembrance of your baby. Your special gift will help us to offer comfort and support to the many bereaved families who sadly need us. You may wish to organise a funeral collection in aid of Aching Arms or set up an online In Memory giving page where your family and friends can donate to Aching Arms in honour of your baby.

Whatever is the most fitting for you - thank you for sharing your baby’s memory with us and creating such a thoughtful and caring tribute. Your kindness will bring comfort to other bereaved families and help them to know they are not alone.

The Weather Lottery

The Weather Lottery is Great Britain’s leading fundraising lottery. It offers the opportunity to support Aching Arms whilst giving you the chance to win their huge £25,000 lottery jackpot in their weekly draw. We will be launching The Weather Lottery later this year and so please come back for further details.

Leave a Gift in your Will

A gift in your will to Aching Arms will enable us to continue to provide the vital support that we offer to parents whose baby has died. There are three different ways you can leave a gift to Aching Arms.

  • A cash gift when you leave a specific amount of money.
  • A specific gift which may be any item of value, such as jewellery or shares.
  • A residuary gift where, after providing for loved ones, you leave a share of what remains.

Aching Arms depends on the generosity of voluntary donations so your gift, however big or small, will always be appreciated.

If you have not made a will, we recommend that you always use a solicitor and if you are considering making a gift to Aching Arms and require any further information, please get in touch with Neal Long at info@achingarms.org.uk.

Our Aching Arms bear makes us have a sense that we're not alone in this never-ending journey called grief.
