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.
Wolverley Christmas/craft fair.
On November 13th HUGS will have a stall at Wolverleys Christmas and Craft Fair at the Memorial Hall. Our amazing trustees Marj and Belinda along with several volunteers have been busy all year creating some amazing Christmas decorations and wreaths. One of these items is the pictured christmas gonk. He stands at 3.5 ft tall from toes to tip of hat and is 1.5ft wide!!! He is being raffled online and at the Fair. If you would like a raffle ticket please email
for details. We would love to see you there, every penny raised goes straight to HUGS to help bereaved families.
A lovely lady recieved one of our early loss boxes earlier this year when her gorgeous boy Rupert was born. Rupert was too beautiful for this world. His Mum Lauren wanted to make sure his memory lived on. Lauren has created “Rupert’s Resins”. She makes the most beautiful keepsakes in resin and any profits she makes goes to baby loss charities. Currently HUGS are the chosen charity and we couldnt be more grateful for this. Items that are lovingly made to order include keyrings, photo frames and christmas baubles all personalised with scan photos, hand and foot prints, names and dates to name a few. Please take a look at her instagram page
or drop HUGS an email and we will put you in touch.
