Be the hero behind every drop

We provide donor milk to sick premature babies in hospital neonatal intensive care units. For tiny babies it’s not just milk, it’s life. Human milk helps to prevent a condition called necrotising enterocolitis (NEC). HMF also supports families at home facing breastfeeding challenges, including supporting mums with cancer.

We’re delighted that Black Sheep Brewery have chosen the HMF as their charity partner. Through this campaign, we hope to raise awareness of the impact of donor milk – for babies, mums and for dads, partners and wider family members too who play such a vital role in supporting feeding.

We need your help

We are working as hard and fast as we can to make sure every baby who could benefit can have access to donor milk, saving babies’ lives and making a difference to families that will last a lifetime. It takes heroes like the amazing women who donate their milk, determined parents, brilliant healthcare professionals and wonderful supporters like you to make this a reality.
It takes £100 to onboard an amazing milk donor, whose milk will help babies across the country who would not otherwise have had this chance.

You can help give a lifeline to a newborn baby by making a contribution to this appeal. By supporting us you are doing something amazing – thank you.
