Ally and Rich Croden's son, Jack, was sadly born sleeping on the 27th of March 2017. Jack's parents were faced with a task that no parent ever anticipates - planning their beautiful little boy's funeral. Jack's family decided to request donations for Aidan's Elephants at his funeral, and have given Jack an incredible legacy - by helping other families who have lost their little ones too.
Jack's Mum, Ally, says:
"We decided to donate to Aidan's Elephants because the memory box we received was amazing and will stay with us forever. The Sunbeam Suite made the hardest time of our lives just a bit more bearable, and gave us the time that we wanted with Jack."
Jack's family and friends raised over £700 for Aidan's Elephants - an amazingly generous amount which will go very far in supporting other families through the most difficult times of their life.
To Jack's family and friends - on behalf of the families Jack will help, and from ourselves - we can't thank you enough for your donation. £700 will provide 30 families with an Aidan's Elephants Memory Box, allowing them to create precious memories with their little one, before they have to sadly say goodbye.
Jack's parents would like to proudly share their little boy's photograph, which you can find under the 'read more' link below.
These little footprints belong to beautiful Hope Rebekah McDade, born sleeping on the 13th of June 2016.
Since losing their little girl, Hope's family have been making sure that her footprints leave a lasting imprint on the world.
Hope's parents, Stuart and Rebecca Mcdade, recently won a loyalty card draw at The Red Lion Pub in Earby. They decided to double the winnings and donate all the money to Aidan's Elephants. The donation of £206 in Hope's honour will pay for ten grieving families to receive our Memory Boxes, giving each of them the opportunity to create beautiful memories and keepsakes with their little one.
Thank you so much to Stuart and Rebecca for all your support. What a beautiful legacy you have given your daughter.
