A SPECIAL event has been organised in memory of one very special baby.
A high tea will be held on the 8 October at the Novotel hotel in Newcastle in honour of baby Maggie Gill.
This high tea will raise awareness for infant and pregnancy loss and much needed funds for Heartfelt, an organisation of volunteer professional photographers who come to take photos of stillborn or terminally sick children.
This important event has been organised by Amanda Gill, in honour of her angel baby Maggie.
Maggie, born a picture of perfection, may not have taken a breath on this earth, but she continues to make a difference in the lives of the people who love her.
Her passing will never be in vain, as those around her use her memory to raise funds, awareness and support for families who so desperately need it.
Heartfelt offers an invaluable service to grieving families, giving them a gift that that does not have a price.
Irreplaceable photographic memories of a child that will never be forgotten, delivered to families in a caring, compassionate and heartfelt manner.
Amanda told News Of The Area, “ I was blessed to have a heartfelt photographer take photos of my beautiful angel Maggie, and they are a real treasure.”
“This wonderful service is completely free to families, as are the prints and photos on USB.”
“We hope to make this year’s event in honour of Maggie a massive success so we can make sure this service continues to be available to families like ours,” she said.
Tickets are $50 each and can be bought individually, or gather your girlfriends and organise a table of 8-10.
Tickets can be purchased via the Facebook event at ‘Maggie’s Heartfelt High Tea’ or from Amanda at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The organisers of this wonderful event are also looking for generous local businesses willing to donate a prize for the event, so that raffles and auctions can be held throughout the day to raise even more funds.
Please contact Amanda if you are able to be a part of this request.
Amanda also wishes to her mother, Genelle Ireland, and sisters Kellie Reddon and Belinda Gallacher for their help with this very special event.
