Anabelle's Angel Day

I am absolutely gobsmacked as I write this, and so in awe of everyone who has donated to Sands in Anabelle's name and supported us. 

Today we held Anabelle's Angel Day Fete. Her birthday celebrations raising money for an organisation who provided so much support in those early days after her death. Sands, the stilbirth and neonatal death charity support anyone affected by the death of a baby and promote research to reduce the loss of babies lives. 

I am so very excited and emotional to announce that our SEMI-FINAL total in Anabelle's name for Sands has reached an absolutely staggering £4948.37. 

This figure so far includes everything donated online on our JustGiving page, various multiple offline cash donations we've been given, money collected so far from our sponsored walk last week, a second fete held at the same time as our in Belle's name in a different part of the country and everything raised from today.  It really is quite phenomenal. There is no other word for it. 

Now this is a semi-final total because we're still counting...

We still have more sponsorship money from our walk to collect, stock left over from the fete today is going to make a bit more money elsewhere and then added to our running total, and the biggy - the promised part-matched donation from Santander is now to be organised and sent onto Sands in Anabelle's name. 

So while we currently sit just shy of £5000, and I marvel in this alone, I already cannot wait to announce our final final total over the coming few weeks. 

Anabelle my incredible little girl has inspired amounts beyond my wildest dreams, and I thought £500 might've been ambitious when we first started this venture!  Such a massive thank you to everyone who has been involved to help make today a success, to everyone who has donated and supported us. Your donations will make a difference, and will contribute to help Sands continue to help bereaved Mummies and Daddies around the UK. 

I'm so very proud to be Anabelle's Mummy and to have achieved everything that we have for her.
