Baby Bunnies: Garden Party

Nichola, owner of Baby Bunnies said:

“When I’d heard the sad news that my next door neighbour’s baby Isobel had passed away I really didn’t know what I could say or do to help the family. A loss of a baby is just heartbreaking.”

“I do an annual garden party so I approached Rachel and Ben a few weeks after Isobel’s death saying I would like to do something in Izzy’s memory, and for the family to choose a charity. They chose Children’s Heart Surgery Fund (as the charity had been absolutely amazing when Izzy was going through her treatment for heart surgery.)”

“When I announced we would be doing fundraising this year for CHSF the families of Doncaster were so supportive and really touched by Isobel’s story. Donations from businesses in Doncaster where brilliant. I also set up bonus balls and raffles before the event.”

“The garden party was held at Doncaster Deaf School on the 1st August. The sun shone all day and an amazing grand total was raised of £2000 for CHSF as well as another £1000 for Yorkshire Air Ambulance!”

“Now each year when the garden party is held there it will be a special reminder of Isobel Wigglesworth – the baby with a big heart.” 💖💖
