£5,852raised of £6,000 target by 231 supporters

    Weʼve raised £5,852 to Purchase a Cold Cot in Albie's memory for the Rowan Suite at Musgrove Park Hospital.

    Funded on Saturday, 31st December 2016

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Our perfect little boy was born sleeping at 34 weeks gestation. The most beautiful baby you have ever seen; perfect in every way.

    We were able to spend a precious few days with our son, baby brother, grandson, nephew because of the amazing cold cot lent to us by The Rowan Suite.

    There are only two in the hospital and when ours broke before we were ready to let Albie go the feeling of panic at such a traumatic time was incomprehensible. Thankfully the amazing staff got it working again and I could cuddle my baby for a little longer.

    Please help us to raise enough money to buy another cot so other families can keep their babies with them for just a few days.

    We love you so much Albie and miss you with every beat of our hearts. Our perfect little prince, too good for this cruel world.

      Daily life is carrying on, but everyday remains a struggle without Albie. I know from test results what caused Albie to die but that offers no comfort when all I want to do is cuddle, feed and look after my baby. Joe and Maisie are missing their brother, they would have been amazing with Albie. He could not be loved anymore if we tried. The three of us are getting by together with Albie at the heart of our world. We talk about him and include him in everything we do and always will. We love you Albie ❤️💔

      Today was Albie's due date. A date that should have been full of excitement and happiness. Instead it has undoubtedly been the hardest day since losing him. I tried so hard to be strong today, but it's not possible. I wouldn't have been able to get through today without my darling friend Faye who had been my rock day in and day out. It's amazing the people that remembered and text/called to say they were thinking of me; but equally as astounding the people that didn't. Albie, mummy loves you. if only love could have made you stay ❤️💙👼🌞

      I'm so so sorry to read about your story, it is heart breaking and brought a tear to my eye. I had not heard of cold cots before. His short life will be even more meaningful by leaving this legacy xx
