Event description

Description

In Nov 2016 my Son, Link, was stillborn. We left that hospital with a hole in our hearts and a wooden box full of the only memories that we had of our beautiful boy.


After we left the hospital, a representative from Red Nose came to visit Link to take impressions of his hands and feet. These molds, along with the contents of the box provided by the hospital are the most precious and sacred thing that we have.


Whilst the blue box provided by the hospital and the cardboard box provided by Red Nose was more than we could expect, I wanted to find a forever home for these memories, one that looked beautiful, one that was safe and one that I could display that didn't hide the precious contents under the lid.


Specifically, I needed the box for his hands and feet to have a see through lid, like a frame, but be able to open it, like a box. Seeing his hands and feet and then being able to still access them to touch them is something that I could not compromise on.


After some uncomfortable conversations with some very expensive framers, I stumbled across Leanne, from Personalised Keepsakes. Leanne and her team have produced for me, the most beautifully handmade boxes for my memories and have done so with the utmost compassion and respect.


Since founding LINK & Luna, it has been my wish to give back. To other families like mine or to anyone in need. This Red Nose Day, 30th June 2017, I will be holding a fundraising event in Newcastle to raise money for the production of many more of these boxes that will then be donated to Red Nose and the John Hunter Hospital for any families who may be affected by stillbirth in the future.


My goal is to raise $5000 which will help approx 100 families.
