Weʼve raised £155 to provide memory boxes to bereaved parents who have lost a child in memory of Jackson John Yates
- Funded on Sunday, 8th October 2017
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.
As many of you know Jackson was tragically killed in a road traffic accident in Manchester while on a trip to see In the Night Garden live.
The aftercare we received from the hospital in Manchester was amazing and as a small comfort we were provided with a memory box which contained items including a candle, book, seed to plant, balloon with a message tag and 2 teddy's one to place with Jackson and one for us to take home that we would eventually swap before saying our goodbyes. Casts were taken from his hands and feet and also prints.
This is now a treasured item in our house and will forever be a symbol of our last precious moments with our son. These boxes are all given by donations and raising money. So as a thank you we want to use all money raised to go these memory boxes.
We will divide funds to Manchester hospital and James Cook where Jackson was born.
