This week on our blog we would love to share with you the story of two wonderful ladies we recently discovered.
Shelley Batty and Lisa Jane Fletcher have set up a small charity making baby angel funeral packs for babies who have sadly passed too soon.
After both losing their beautiful baby girls Beth and Lillie Grace, they felt they wanted to help other bereaved families going through such a devastating experience.
Together they formed the Facebook group LillieBeth Memories and from there they began to arrange baby angel funeral packs to be donated to local hospitals and funeral homes or to be sent direct to any family following their loss.
They offer angel mummies a choice of what is in the box, but there is often a blanket, gown, knitted bonnet, candle and a love heart card with “made with love” inside. The angel gowns are all created by Shelley, other handmade items are lovingly made by volunteers.
The angel gowns are all made using donated wedding and prom dresses acquired via the Facebook page, Dresses for Angels.
Packs are mainly donated to hospitals in Halifax, Chesterfield and Barnsley, Shelley and Lisa are looking to contact hospitals further afield but they can be requested by anyone.
Do you know someone who is doing an amazing job to help others suffering from a bereavement of any kind? We’d love to hear about them. Perhaps they might like to be featured in our blog?
