Amanda Gill, with the help of her mother Genelle, sisters Kellie and Belinda, and some special friends, organised the high tea, which sold out again for its second year, at Newcastle’s Novotel hotel.

The high tea honouring Maggie was decorated beautifully with birdcages adorned with flowers, birds and pearls on each table, in a sweet nod to the life of a little girl who was on the minds of every person present.

During the course of the day, through raffles and guess competitions, a total of $3,177 was raised for Heartfelt.

Heartfelt is an organisation of volunteer professional photographers who come to take photos of stillborn or terminally sick children, and provide irreplaceable memories and keepsakes for grieving parents and families.

Heartfelt offers an invaluable service to grieving families, giving them a gift that that does not have a price.

It provides irreplaceable photographic memories of a child that will never be forgotten, delivered to families in a caring, compassionate and heartfelt manner.

Maggie’s high tea fundraiser grand total will go a long way in providing many sets of the pieces needed for the special package presented to grieving parents.

Amanda told News Of The Area, “We are so pleased with how everything went, and are so thankful to everyone who attended.”

“A big thank you to all who came and donated, your support not just for Heartfelt, but for myself and my family, is so comforting and appreciated.

Every child’s life, no matter how fragile or brief, makes an impact on this world, and Maggie’s life certainly continues to do just that.
