Young Aylesbury boy raising money for stillbirth charity

After losing his baby sister when his mum was 37-weeks pregnant a young boy from Aylesbury is cutting off all his hair for charity.

Harry Stevens is raising money for SANDS, a stillbirth charity,  because he doesn't want other babies dying like his sister Darcey did.

Harry started growing his hair at the beginning of the year as he wanted to raise money for charity.

When his family received the heartbreaking news that they had lost Darcey at the end of September Harry decided to fund raise for SANDS, because their help and advice really helped his family.

The 6-year-old told us:

"I want to stop babies dying because we've had Darcey die and that was really sad.

"I don't want anyone to be sad."

Harry's mum, Amy, told us having people like SANDS who know what you're going through and can give answers to the many questions you have is very important.

Their advice ranges completely from helping you figure out how to tell family and friends to how to plan the funeral.

Amy added that they have been in awe of how Harry's coped through losing Darcey:

"We've all been through a very very tough time, a devastating time.

"For him to turn around of his own back and say I want to raise money for people who's babies have died.

"Really really proud."

Harry has this message for anyone that might be going through what his family did:

"I hope you're not super sad like us after your baby dies."
