    Weʼve raised £12,700 to donate a “cuddle cot” to Forth Valley Royal Hospital in memory of our beautiful daughter Penelope.

    Cumbernauld, Glasgow
    Funded on Sunday, 25th June 2023

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Penelope was born sleeping on the 23rd February 2023 at 1:18pm, she weighed 6lb 3oz and was absolutely beautiful.

    Although this has been a devastating and heartbreaking time for all of us, the desire to do something in Penelope‘s memory has been palpable.

    When Penelope was born, the hospital provided us with a “cuddle cot” which preserved our gorgeous girl and gave us priceless and everlasting memories and the opportunity to spend time with our baby girl.

    The ”cuddle cot” brought peace and comfort to Melissa and I and its something we will be forever grateful for to the team at Forth Valley Royal Hospital and the opportunity to share these moments and bring our beautiful Penelope home.

    We will be completing the Kiltwalk in Penelope's memory and all donations will go directly to Forth Valley Giving in the aid of supporting grieving families like ourselves in the hope it will bring them comfort as it has us.

    I thank you all for your love and support.

    Lets do this for Penelope.

    Love, Ryan and Melissa xx

      Absolutely blown away by the support to have reached the initial goal so quickly, it is testimony to the love and support we have received so far. I have increased the donations goal to £2000 as it will all go to good use at the hospital along with the cuddle cot. Thank you so very much to all who have donated, we are truly and deeply touched by your kindness ❤️! Ryan and Melissa xxx

    Our beautiful daughter Penelope was stillborn on 23rd February 2023. The team at Forth Valley Royal Hospital were absolutely fantastic in caring for my wife Melissa and Penelope, as well as myself. We want to donate a cuddle cot to the hospital to support grieving parents.
