On a very sunny day in June we held  family fun day at Bewdley Bowling Club. We had plenty of activities for the children to do such as cake decorating, teddy tombola, toy stalls, inside and outside games and a disco. There was plenty for the adults too with a prosecco bar, an amazing stall and a raffle with some amazing prizes. The day was a huge success and we managed to tidy up just before a huge storm! The day raised an incredible £2000 for HUGS. Thank you to everyone involved, those who ran stalls, those who came to support us and especially to Bewdley Bowling Club for hosting us!

Morrisons Baby Loss Awareness tree.

Huge thank you to Morrisons in Kidderminster, and in particular Diane Rudd the community champion. During Baby Loss Awareness week they had a beautiful display offerering families the chance to place their babies name on a beautifully lit tree with a lovely butterfly. They had our leaflets on the table and had tea light candles for families to take and light at home for Wave of Light.  We really appreciate the awareness this raised, the comfort it gave families to write and display their babies names in such a beautiful way and for raising £181.41 for us. We have read and photographed all the beautiful the tags, if you would like yours back please get in touch and we will return it to you. 

EE Tang and Jo Robinson

Our friends Jo and EE (all the way from Singapore) have been very busy, we have received several packages from them both. Jo lovingly makes the beautiful bears for our memory boxes and EEs knitting needles must be on fire with the amout of gorgeous blankets she has sent us. Thank you so much ladies, we couldnt do it without you.

Walk for Charlotte

On the 19th of June Bex (our chairlady) and David Pountney walked from Kidderminster to Ironbridge, a total of 27 miles. Their daughter Charlotte was stillborn 7 years ago and they did the walk in her memory. They raised a fabulous £1574.29! This is enough money to provide hospitals with 40 later loss boxes or 105 early loss boxes. Well done!
