    Story

    Hi My names Laura, I am doing a charity event to raise money for a cuddlecot in memory of my son Cowen which will be donated to my local hospital in Derby.

    Cowen passed away on the 29th October 2016 after contracting meningococcal septicaemia.
    I got the chance to use the cuddlecot at the funeral home and got to use it for 18 days before I had to say goodbye, it allowed myself and my family to spend them extra time and give him extra cuddles and kisses.
    I would love to be able to give another family the opportunity like I did to be able to bond, cuddle, kiss and spend every moment with there baby.

    It was comforting to know I could go and see cowen and spend as many hours as I wanted with him, without the cuddlecot I wouldn't have been able to do that.

    The charity event I am having is in derby at the canal turn in Spondon on 11th May 2016 @ 7pm, it will be hosted by the lovely clairvoyant Annette Moss. Tickets are £10 per person. We will also be doing a raffle which is £5 a strip, we have some fantastic prizes from a signed derby County shirt to a lovely manicure, Annette is also giving away a 1 to 1 reading.

    So if you are unable to attend please leave a donation or buy some raffle tickets if your with in the area to collect.

      Hi guys, so the cuddle cot will be going in the children's paediatric unit in a quiet room, but as I have time on my hands I've been researching and flexmort do a mini cot which is for children's from2/3years plus, this device is more expensive which is £4,999 and with derby royal having 4 cuddle cots I think it'll be only fair to think of the parents who have lost there child from 2/3 years up to 16 years to be able to use this incredible equipment, I understand it won't be for everyone but if it helps majority of families I'll be happy.

      Good luck and we'll done for raising this money, I couldn't imagine how difficult it must have been to loose a child and anything that brings comfort during these times is worth it.
