Story

A Quid (or two) for some Kindness!

On 11th January 2018, our world changed forever after our first son Kaspar was born prematurely at 23+3 weeks. Sadly, Kaspar only lived for 6 short hours but we were given the chance to spend precious time with him as a family and create lasting memories in the hospitals bereavement suite. Everything in the suite is donated by families that have tragically had to make use of it in the past.

We would love to be able to raise some funds to update some of the furniture in the room, and most importantly to purchase a new 'cuddle cot' - this is a cot that keeps babies cold after they have passed away allowing parents and babies to have extra time together without their appearance changing. This was so unbelievably important to me and Owen - it meant Kaspar could stay in the room with us and we had privacy during some of the most amazing but heartbreaking days as we said goodbye to our son.

The Cuddle Cot at Chesterfield needs updating and this is what we hope the money raised will go towards. At present, roughly 2 families per month make use of the suite at Chesterfield and we would love to be able to make their stay as comfortable as possible.

It is Kaspar's due date on 7th May, and as his name means 'bringer of precious gifts' on that day we will be carrying out random acts of kindness by leaving gifts in his memory. We would love it if you could all join us by donating a 'a quid (or two) for some kindness' to our cause.

We plan to do some more fundraising later in the year, including half marathons, and Owen said if we hit our target, he'll consider entering a marathon next year (surely that's enough encouragement to donate!)

Thank you for reading. You can find out more about our story at www.loveamongstthestars.com

Much love,

Tasha, Owen and Kaspar, xxx

    Wow! Wow! Wow! Me and Owen are completely overwhelmed by all the donations (including an incredibly generous anonymous one overnight) which has taken us to £1600!! That covers the cost of a new cuddle cot 🙌💙 Anything above this amount will now be used for other precious keepsakes for parents! Thank you all so much. Love Tasha, Owen and Kaspar, xxx

    Thank you all so so much - to everyone who had donated and supported what we are doing. The last 4 months have been the most difficult of our lives but knowing that we are doing this in Kaspar’s memory and that it will help other families keeps us moving forward. And so now for the final push towards the £1600 target which is the cost of a new ‘cuddle cot.’ Anything raised above this amount will be used for other keepsakes such as ‘heart in their hand’ - a keyring which has two pieces. One for your babies hand and the other part for you 💙

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! Can’t believe the support and generosity we’ve received - it means so much to have reached £1k! As it’s ‘National Pay It Forward’ Day we thought what better way than to increase our total (if we can get to £1.6k then that fully covers the cost of a brand new cuddle cot 🙌🙌) - let’s keep going!!
