Story

On the 18th of April 2022 I will be having my head shaved to raise money for Aching Arms, Group B Strep support and the little princess Trust. The 18th of April marks 10 years since we announced to the world that we were expecting our first child together. 2022 marks 10 years since our precious princess began to grow. I loved feeling every movement and hearing her heartbeat at all my antenatal appointments. Sadly on the 11th of December 2012 after a 2 day fight against group b Strep Meningitis Madison sadly died peacefully whilst held in mine and her daddies arms. Since losing Madison we have received unbelievable support from Aching Arms UK and Group B Strep Support and I would like to raise money to help both charities to continue to support families who sadly find themselves in our situation.
