Help us make a difference today

SIDS takes the lives of innocent children across the world everyday. At the Sydney-May Trust, we may not be able to stop every child from leaving too soon, but we do our best to help raise SIDS awareness. With your help, we can give these children a better chance at survival.

Why help the Cause?

No parent should have to bury their child. By donating to the cause, you allow us to provide new and expecting mothers with breathing and movement monitors. They can then respond quickly if anything goes wrong, and increase their child's chances of survival. Donating will help to raise SIDS awareness in the UK.


On the 10th of December 2016, at 3 months and 4 days, Sydney-May Burge passed away from SIDS, leaving her family heartbroken. Jemma, Sydney-May's mother, created the Sydney-May Trust to raise SIDS awareness and help other parents safeguard their children. In memory of her beloved daughter, Jemma works hard to raise awareness by raising money, holding events, and giving emotional talks about the risks and causes of SIDS.

"Sydney-May, my beautiful big eyed girl who stole my heart in more ways than one. She left me for the angels on the 10th of December 2016 at only 3 months 4 days old. That day she took my heart with her. This fund, and her legacy, can help other parents from feeling this pain. I will do all I can in her memory to help save lives and to make people and parents stop and think."

Jemma Roberts - Founder of the Sydney-May Trust, and mother to Sydney-May

Help To Raise SIDS Awareness

All donations are greatly appreciated, and can help us to keep a newborn child safe and sound, and to organise fundraisers and charity events for the Trust.

How your Donations Help

Your donations will go towards Infant CPR Training for expecting and new parents. It will also go towards providing breathing and movement monitors, which keep track of your baby’s movement and breathing patterns, and alert you to any problems, so that you can respond quickly and increase your child’s chances of survival.

Even a one-off donation or a monthly donation of a few pounds, can save a child’s life. We urge you to do the right thing, and to help us raise awareness for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
