A charity evening has been hailed a success after raising money and awareness.
A ladies evening held at Olives at the Station, in Whitley Bay, raised £380 for the Remember My Baby (RMB) charity by bringing together clothes, candles and beauty pampering stations.
Inspired by RMB volunteer photographer Tina Stobbs, of Whitley Bay, event organiser Lee Casey said: “Remember My Baby is for parents losing their baby before, during or shortly after birth.
“As a volunteer photographer Tina captures precious images of a baby with their parents, siblings and extended family at such a sensitive time and each family receives a ‘free gift’ of digital images on a USB stick.
“Raising an incredible £380 will enable the charity to fund 76 USB sticks for families who use the service in the future. Thank you to everyone who supported the evening, it was a really fabulous night.”
The remembrance photography service offer is to all parents suffering the loss of their baby in every hospital and birth centre in the UK.
Families can contact Remember My Baby via www.remembermybaby.org.uk or the volunteer photographers directly if their hospital or Birth Centre does not promote the services offered.
Alternatively, those in an NHS Trust who would like to know more about the service and how to introduce it into a maternity hospital or birth centre should email firstname.lastname@example.org
