On the 15th September 2019 our world came crashing down when Wynter Sophia passed away.
We had never felt heartache like this before. However through this terrible time we found comfort in fundraising for a cold cot. This one cold cot turned into two cold cots then memory boxes. It felt good to feel like we were making a difference to other people facing the same devastation we have faced.
We have formed the fundraising group 'Wynter's Wish' to raise funds and awareness for baby loss and bereavement support charities.
The aims and purposes of the charity are to;
- Providing ‘Wynter’s Wish’ literature and toys for bereaved families and/or healthcare professionals supporting those families affected by baby loss in order to promote the emotional, psychological and physical health and wellbeing of parents and provide them with comfort and support.
- The relief of financial hardship among bereaved families living in England and Wales by making grants of financial assistance or paying for items services or facilities.
- Providing grant of financial assistance to charities and voluntary organisations who raise awareness of baby loss and support families affected by baby loss.
- Providing events and information which raise public awareness of baby loss
"Both Sarah and myself are truly heartbroken, we've never known pain like this but I'm glad we had the opportunity to feel love like this. We will always be proud and loving parents to our little girl. She's our angel who will always be with us, held closely in our hearts".
