Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit Archie's JustGiving page.

Archie was born on the 3rd October 2012, he was 16 weeks' premature. Archie was extremely strong in the opening days of his life, he had a wonderful character kicking his legs up around his ears, he would hold our fingers tightly, he would hold onto the many tubes which entered his small body. Our worst fears were realised when Archie caught three infections, he battled for 18 hours but sadly, passed away on the 10th October 2012...he was one week old.

Archie will never be forgotten. As his parents, we will not allow anyone to forget our gorgeous little boy-hence, this site. Our goal is to raise as much money as possible in his memory. Please give as much as you can to help other parents in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in St. Michael's Hospital and Cots for Tots in Bristol. From Archie: "thank you"! Tim and Sue Handel-Archie's Mummy and Daddy xxx
