Why is the mark named after Millie?


Millie’s Mark is named after Millie Thompson, who tragically died as a result of choking on food at a nursery in Stockport in 2012.

Her parents, Dan and Joanne Thompson, set up Millie’s Trust in her name and campaigned to have paediatric first aid legislations changed within the childcare industry. 

The original petition was signed by over 100,00 people and it was debated in Parliament and Millie’s Mark was born.
