£1,142raised of £500 target by 41 supporters

Weʼre raising £500 to raise funds for the charities who have been an unbelievable help and strength to Stuart, Francesca and Rosalie from birth to bereavment.

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.


Our beautiful daughter Rosalie Eleanor Shakspeare was born on 21st May 2018 and sadly passed just 47 and a half hours later. During this time she was cared for by the amazing Neonatal Team in the Women's Hospital. They worked tirelessly to save her precious life and gave her every chance.

After her passing we were immediately supported by The Honeysuckle Bereavement Team based in the Women's Hospital, they helped us and will continue to support us in ways you can never imagine.

When it was time to leave the hospital we were offered the chance to stay in Claire's House Children's Hospice's butterfly bereavement suite instead of having to face the harsh reality of returning home. Here they offer endless support and care to ourselves, family and friends. They have even allowed us to bring our pet tortoise Sally to stay.

We will forever be grateful for all the help, support and hard work these three charities have offered us in an impossibly difficult time. Unfortunately we will not be the last people to need these services so we are asking kindly if anyone is able to donate a small amount of money to help these wonderful people continue to do their work.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Stuart, Francesca & Rosalie

    Francesca and I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has kindly donated in memory of our beautiful baby Rosalie and shown their love and support to us in the past weeks. We are truly grateful for every kind word, cards and thoughtful gestures of which there have been so many. So far £1,882 has been raised by our amazing friends and family. We will be closing the JustGiving page next weekend so we can get the money to the deserving charities that have helped us immensely. Love Stuart and Francesca XxX
