Weʼre raising £5,000 to Support the parents of Sophie Atkins

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

Recently Baby Sophie, who has been hospital since she was born, was diagnosed with an extremely rare condition making her 1 of only 7 known cases in the world. She battled for 4 months in the Bristol Hospital for Children, with her parents never leaving her side. Tragically, Sophie has now lost her battle.

During her short 4 month time in this world parents, Dan and Andrea Atkins, have had to split their lives between supporting Sophie and each other in Bristol, while maintaining their architectural practice in Plymouth. This practice is their passion and their livelihood. Unlike employment where compassionate leave, holiday entitlement and weekends would have provided some relief in this time of mourning, the pressures of running a business will continue to be on their minds during a difficult time.

We are launching this appeal to raise money for Dan and Andrea to use as they see fit, whether it be to donate to further research into Sophie’s condition, provide funding to the hospital and carers, or simply enable them to take some much needed time off together to heal.

    Today we all said goodbye to Sophie in our various ways, and of course a tremendous amount of love has been sent to Dan and Andrea. Once again, thank you for all of your donations. We are so close to the target now, please keep spreading the word. As mentioned in a previous post, we will be gathering everyone's words and names onto a card so that in addition to your collective generosity, Dan and Andrea will have something special to keep. This support is astounding and wonderful. Thank you.
