Helping create memories

PARENTS mourning the loss of a child will be given more support to help preserve precious memories thanks to staff at Procter & Gamble.

Staff at the P&G site on Cobalt Business Park raised more than £5,000 so charity 4Louis could get more memory boxes for families who have lost a baby or child.

The charity was set up by Kirsty McGurrell after her son Louis was stillborn.

Included in the box is a clay impression kit to make imprints of hands and feet, a box for a lock of hair, a teddy, a glass angel and a card.

So far, nearly 5,000 boxes have been sent to 42 UK hospitals.

P&G employee Tricia Copping nominated 4Louis for a charity donation from the Community Matters programme.
