THE GIRLS from the Busy Bee Nursery and Lochside Playgroup took part in a 165-foot bungee jump last Saturday to raise funds for the Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths.

They managed to raise an impressive total of £665 for the charity.

There was excellent sponsorship from local businesses, and Rebekah Jack, Megan Burness and Kerri Duncan have thanked Madisons, Coffee House, Buth Tabhartas, Jooles, A Touch of Dutch and Bargains Galore for their generosity.

The Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths (FSID) is one of the UK’s leading baby charities working to prevent sudden infant deaths and promote baby health.

FSID funds research into the causes of sudden infant death, supports families who have been devastated by cot death, and promotes lifesaving baby safety advice to parents, carers and professionals.

The charity launched the ‘Reduce the Risk’ campaign which has reduced the UK cot death rate by 70 per cent since 1991 and is one of the most successful health promotion campaigns ever.

FSID offers a free helpline, 0808 802 6868, for parents, carers and health professionals, a network of befrienders to support bereaved families, and the care of the next infant scheme in partnership with the NHS, to support bereaved families with subsequent babies.
