£540raised of £300 target by 22 supporters

    Weʼve raised £540 to help three amazing charities in memory of my niece Sophie

    Funded on Thursday, 16th August 2018

    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.


    On 5th March 2018 my brother and sister in law received the worst news imaginable. Their baby girl’s heart had stopped at 37 weeks and 4 days. On 6 March my niece, Sophie, was born sleeping.

    They were cared for in the Forget Me Not Suite at the RUH in Bath. This is a specially designed bereavement suite set away from the main maternity ward. Within the suite Sophie had a ‘cuddle cot’ – a moses basket which is kept cool, allowing family the chance to meet her and cuddle her. Memories we will always cherish.

    The family were provided with a memory box. Amongst other things it contained a hand-knitted blanket, two identical teddies (one stayed with Sophie) and other keepsakes. These boxes are provided by Sands, the stillbirth and neonatal death charity.

    Professional photos were taken by a photographer from Remember My Baby, and these were then given to the family for free.

    The hospital also covered the costs of Sophie’s funeral.

    I'll be taking part in the Tough Mudder half on 5th May in Sophie's memory - please help me raise as much as possible for these charities - they all do such important work ❤
