SUPERMARKET staff raised hundreds of pounds for a charity that honours babies who have died, were stillborn or miscarried.

Staff from Sainsbury’s at Broadcut in Fareham held a fundraising day after one of their colleagues lost their grandchild.

Simba provides grieving families with a memory box and aims to improve facilities at hospitals.

Charity director Sara Fitzsimmons said: ‘We’re delighted the staff organised this day. We’ve recently started supplying memory boxes to the maternity units in the area and it’s important that people are aware of our charity as it grows. Our services are available to all parents suffering the loss of a child through miscarriage or stillbirth.’

Sainsbury’s staff member Jane Rigby said: ‘We raised over £600 so Simba can buy 24 family boxes. It was great.’
