A GROUP of ladies have raised money for a charity which helps parents and families who have tragically lost a child to stillbirth or neo-natal death.

The funds were raised throughout 2018 to help provide families with memory boxes which parents can use to save precious memories.

As of December 2018, they raised £1357.69 which they say is enough to make another 19 boxes.

Operations manager at Lily-Mae, Amy Jackson, was there to accept the money after she and her husband started the foundation in memory of their daughter, Lily-Mae, who passed away in February 2010.

The money was raised by ladies from a Weight Watchers group in Dorridge and as well as providing money for memory boxes, one lady decided to go one step further.

Weight Watchers member, Kim Wagstaff hand-knitted a beautiful pink doll, which when auctioned off raised an addtional £135 for The Lily-Mae foundation.

Alison Owen, a gold member also part of the Weight Watchers group in Dorridge, won the doll.
