Story

Our beautiful baby boy Kolby fell asleep in our arms after a short sixteen days on this earth. He was so wanted and so loved by many, espically his big brother Kody (who's approaching four years old)

Kolby was doing so well after spending his time since birth on the neonatal unit, unexpectedly and heartbreakingly Kolby took a bad turn, and we ended up traveling to Addenbrookes in cambridge where two days later he grew his wings.

We never thought it would happen to us, and was oblivious to how common the loss of a baby is, whether this is by miscarriage/stillbirth/neonatal death. 1 in 4 experience this!

As parents who have experienced the loss of a child we have decided to set up Kolby's footprints in his memory and are hoping to raise money to give comfort to other parents who sadly go through this.

We aim to provide hospitals with memory boxes to be given to parents at the time of saying goodbye, in these boxes will include keepsakes for parents of their baby such as teddies, candles, hand and foot print kits and much more.

Through Kolbys footprints we also aim to do other amazing things around this which might help a family at their most vunerable time.

Follow Kolbys footprints on facebook and Instagram for regular updates, and THANK YOU for giving to our fund.

    Thank you too... The Imray family who raised £300 in sponsors for kolbysfootprints and both Katie & Matt successfully completed 3hours each on the bike for the cyclethon event! To Whelan who raised over £200 in sponsors for kolbysfootprints he peddled 2hours and 27minutes with an injury which was incredible. The Piggott family, Simon & Sharon raised £100 in sponsors for kolbysfootprints and both participated in the cyclethon event peddling non stop for one hour each. Well done and thankyou 💙 more from the cyclethon event to follow...

    So after hours of research I've just learnt I cannot add offline donations to the total raised (slightly frustrating!) So I will be adding on total amounts from fundraisers etc as posts to keep everyone updated. From Kolby's funeral we collected a generous £610.60 in donations, from family friends and colleagues, An amazing thank you to everyone who gave 💙 And of course Xtreme gym in Danbury hosting the 12hour cyclethon raised an amazing amount which I cannot wait to share with you once the gym has revealed first 💙
