    Story

    I started Theresa's Tiny Treasures in October 2015, the aim of this registered charity is provide baby bereavement photography and keepsakes to families of babies miscarried or 'born sleeping'.

    Registered charity number 1169080

    The charity provides hand and footprints onto ceramic which will be fired in a kiln that Jacob's parents raised money for (these have previously been glazed by Stanhoe Pottery until I had raised funds for my own kiln). Money needs to be raised for ceramic blanks, underglaze, glazing supplies and a dipping glaze.

    Also provided are plaster castings of babies hand and feet, hand made clothing, blankets, quilts, baby bereavement charms, baby bracelets and many other things. I also provide burial gowns for tiny babies to term babies made from wedding dresses these are made by Jane and Hayley.

    The charity provides footprints in sand which are made into 3d glass made by pouring in molten glass. The charity has many knitters who are committed to providing beautiful clothes, I am grateful for each and every kindness.

    Many other keepsakes are being added and will be provided if funding allows. These items all cost money and will always be offered for free to any families needing the services. I would hate to ever put a price on providing memories and have had some wonderful donations that have all been put to good use setting up and running a new charity. The set up costs have been more than anticipated and I find myself again funding keepsakes.

    Desperately needed:-
    ceramic blanks
    underglaze
    dipping glaze
    glazing tools
    flooring for charity room
    plumbing for charity room
    sink, stand, small water heater for charity room
    .................. a heater would be amazing as the garage is freeeeeezing (charity room).
    alginate, plaster of Paris (all used up on my last family)
    ink free wipes for taking extra hand and footprints for extended family
    sibling toys and books
    .............. I really wouldn't ask if I didn't need support xx

      After many years working for the NHS I have decided to provide what I consider is a much needed service to families who lose a longed for baby at any stage of pregnancy. This will compliment the service the NHS already provides to families.
