Nine babies a day were stillborn in 2016. That's nine broken families, nine horrific losses and the start of nine heartbreaking journeys every single day.
One of those babies was Vera Bailey. Alice and David Bailey's daughter was stillborn at 38 weeks in October 2016 and their entire world was shattered.
Alice and David have since founded Vera's Petals to raise funds and awareness for the charity Petals www.petalscharity.org (Charity no. 1150375) who supported the couple after the loss of their beloved daughter.
To raise vital funds and awareness for Petals, Alice and David Bailey along with their family are hosting a ball on Saturday 15th of September at the Waldorf Hilton in London’s Covent Garden. All proceeds raised at the ball will go directly to Petals.
You can read more about Vera’s Petals on their Facebook page (www.facebook.com/veraspetals/), you can also follow them on Twitter (@VerasPetals).
We understand that not everyone will be able to attend the ball, so we have set up this JustGiving page for Vera’s Petals too. If you would like to donate to Vera’s Petals we would be enormously grateful.
Vera’s Petals Ball is just the first of many fundraising events we will be doing. If you’re interested in fundraising on behalf of Vera’s Petals get in touch with Mary Hickey on email@example.com
