Fundraising Update

It has been a long time coming; two months on from Anabelle's Angel Day and the final figure has been collated and ready to reveal! 

Santander this morning confirmed that they have sent £3500 to Sands in Anabelle's name. Only last week another donation was kindly contributed on her Just Giving page; because of a connection I've made through blogging. More kindness from strangers.  I think I will just leave her page open for the time being; I have a feeling its work is not finished! 

So excitedly, adding it altogether today; an enormous £9320.74 has now been sent to Sands. NINE THOUSAND, THREE HUNDRED AND TWENTY POUNDS AND SEVENTY FOUR PENCE! 

My baby girl has inspried an enormous amount of generoristy from so many people. It is mine and Jon's hope that it will be a valued contribution to the continuation of the services Sands provides for bereaved families and help with funding research to stop babies of the future dying. 

Nothing can bring Anabelle back. She can't come back; but even in her death she has been involved in something so huge and has made such a difference. £9320.74 is a figure that was beyond all our expectations. I never in a million years thought we would achieve anywhere near so much. It really is quite precious. What a legacy for Anabelle Violet Morgan! 

So who thinks we can make it to the £10k mark by her second birthday?!

Congratulations.

It's a great achievement. I'm sure you can top the 10k mark really soon.
