    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.

    Story

    As you will know our beautiful son Rory was born sleeping at 21 weeks and 4 days on Thursday 13th July 2017.

    We would not have been able to get through those first few difficult days without the support, love and care we were shown by the amazing staff at St Mary`s hospital and in particular the bereavement team.

    Thank you will never be enough to show how grateful Andy and I are for the care that was given to us and Rory during this time.

    St Mary`s has two special bereavement rooms designed for parents and families who suffer a bereavement. The bereavement rooms are less clinical than a normal maternity room. They have furniture and other items that give them a sense of home from home. These rooms allow families that much needed time to just be together as a family and say goodbye in a private and peaceful setting.

    Therefore we are hoping to raise some funds so we can work with Vicky and Lyndsey, the two midwives who run the bereavement team at St Mary`s. Our aim is to provide some items for the bereavement rooms that can be used by families like us when your worst fears are realised.

    This is our way of giving something back and honouring Rory`s memory. Hopefully this goes some way to helping the next family that has to go through this awful experience.

    Much love
    Andy, Sarah Jane & Rory x

      Just wanted to post a final update and say a massive Thank You to everyone for their incredibly generous donations. We raised a total of £580 in Rory`s memory which is quite simply amazing! We have split the money into two. We used a portion to purchase some small teddies, tiny outfits for the babies at St Mary’s, as well as some much needed craft items for the parents support group meetings. The other portion of the money we have used to purchase 11 keepsake boxes from the 4louis charity like the one we were given by St Mary's for Rory.

      These boxes are quite simply invaluable in assisting families to make precious memories. (For anyone wanting to know more details of what the boxes contain can be found here: http://www.4louis..co.uk/apps/webstore/products/show/1469179) Finally an extra special mention to our friends and family who also knitted blankets, hats and cardigans. Your contribution to this fund has really helped make a difference. It is so comforting to know that we were able to do this in Rory`s memory. Thank you. Lots of love Andy, SJ & Rory xxxx

      Thank you so much for everyone's generous donations. It is very kind of you and more than we could have hoped to have raised in Rory's memory. We will update you again once we have spoken to the bereavement team and they have advised what items they need so we can buy them with all the money raised. Andy, SJ & Rory xxx
