About

In 2016 I had to end my pregnancy of five months because my little girl was too poorly to go full term. 
It was the single most devastating thing I've ever had to do. 
She is missed every single day and although she isn't physically here, her life remains just as important to be remembered as any other member of my family that had a good innings. 
I came across www.sayinggoodbye.org via the wonders of social media, and the support they provide to women, and men and their families is invaluable. 
So here's the thing...over the next 12 months, I've agreed to try and raise up to £50k, (along with my blood pressure and anxiety) so this is going to be the mother of all tasks, gawd help me. 
By donating you will be helping to provide support for so many people that have suffered or are affected by the loss of a baby. 
Over the next 12 months, be prepared for me turning up to events, dressed as a butternut squash, singing nessum dorma, whilst zip wiring over a car park somewhere in Rhyl or High Wycombe, or wherever I happen to end up*. 
If you can, please donate, every little helps. 
Thank you. 
*Just to say this is just an example, not an actual planned event. Yet.

Hi Lou! You don't know me but I am Claire Carroll's sister-in-law (and friend!). I suffered the same sadness 20 years ago when my baby boy Joseph had to be born at 5 months. Always loved, never forgotten. Wishing you much luck in your endeavours!
