Bringing comfort after pregnancy and baby loss
Aching Arms is a baby loss charity run by a group of bereaved parents who have experienced the pain and emptiness of leaving hospital without their baby. Our aim is to raise awareness of the impact of pregnancy and baby loss and bring some comfort to bereaved parents and their families after the loss of a baby.
Aching Arms was registered as a charity in 2013 and now just over 100 hospitals in the UK offer Aching Arms comfort bears to parents whose baby has died. The leaflet provided with the bear signposts parents to our website and to the range of helpline and support services which other baby charities provide.
We donate Aching Arms comfort bears to hospitals, hospices and funeral directors to offer to parents in their care. We also reach out to bereaved families who contact us via our website, email, Facebook or Twitter and post dedicated bears directly.

- I wanted to become a member of the Chamber of Commerce so that I could learn more about the local business community having only recently moved here.

After 14 years of working as a corporate PA in London I set up my own business in July 2017. I now work with small to medium businesses who have realised that to be more productive, and use their time in the best possible way they need to outsource some of their work. I specialise in traditional PA tasks such as diary and inbox management, travel and research. I also offer business support services and am very proficient in setting up and maintaining CRM systems, email marketing platforms and campaigns and updating websites to name but a few things.
The tasks that always stay on a to do list and get moved from one day to the next, are general the jobs and tasks that I love to do!

Alec’s Restaurant Bar & Grill opened in 2010 and has established itself as one of Essex’s leading fish Restaurants. Attracting customers from near and far, Alec’s prides itself on quality ingredients and exceptional service.
Unwind with a premium bottle of wine or signature cocktail in the comfortable lounge or bar area, before taking a seat in the elegant main dining room, which can accommodate 120 guests.
Roaring fires in the winter and a delightful outdoor dining area in the summer, only enhance the elegant building.
The menu at Alec’s Restaurant Bar & Grill is traditionally British and sets out to provide simple, quality fresh food. Although predominantly a seafood restaurant serving the finest fish and shellfish, mouth-watering meat dishes add to this impressive menu.
Alec’s Restaurant is proud to follow the MSC code of conduct for sustainably sourced seafood. Plus, all seafood and fish are wild and ‘day boat caught’ from across Britain.
The finest, most succulent cuts of meat are sourced from across the globe, with Welsh lamb and ‘USDA’ strip loins from the USA frequenting the menu.
From the freshly baked bread to all dishes cooked to order, you are guaranteed a fine dining experience to remember.
I heard about the chamber by googling business groups in Brentwood (I was previously a member of the British Business Group while residing in the UAE and it was great for networking).
Our primary reason for joining would be for networking with other members, and having the opportunity to host and attend events.
