Bereaved parents plan new fundraiser in memory of their little girlBy Becky Barnes
January 29, 2013
Parents mourning the loss of their baby daughter have planned another fundraiser to honour her memory.
Newly-weds Aimee and Frank Foster, from Binfield, who were married on December 22, last year, lost Grace just 24 hours after she was born eight weeks early with a serious heart condition in April last year.
The couple, who have another daughter Susie, three, launched ‘A Year For Grace’ following her death and raised nearly £500 for Support for the Sick Newborn and their Parents (SSNAP) at a Christmas shopping event in December.
Aimee, 31, said the family was trying to make something positive out of Grace’s death by raising money for critically ill babies and their families.
The next event will be a ‘very indulgent’ pottery evening at Leapfrog Ceramics, Moss End Garden Village, Warfield, on Thursday, February 7, from 6.30pm to 9pm.
Aimee added: “Come along, paint some pottery and have a glass of bubbly.
“This is a great way to spend an evening with friends and would also be a wonderful birthday present for someone that loves painting and being creative.”
The evening will include £35 of pottery to paint, unlimited freshly-ground coffee, Clipper teas, hot chocolate and soft drinks with a glass of bubbly on arrival.
Tickets cost £40 and £20 of this will be donated to SSNAP.
To book visit www.leapfrogceramics.co.uk or call (01344) 868 445.
The event is also publicised on Facebook.
