Reminds Me of You - Remembrance Bauble for Christmas Tree Festival

Posted 7/28/2017

Reminds Me of You

Remembrance Baubles 28.07.17 - 10.11.17 (closing date for postal participation)

I am very pleased to say that this year we are having a Christmas tree for the first time at the Dalton Christmas Tree Festival to help raise money and awareness for Tigerlily Trust and baby and child loss.

The festival theme this year is “All Kinds And Everything” and I immediately thought of the Dana song which continues – “Reminds Me Of You” It felt very much like it was absolutely meant to be and so our tree title is “Reminds Me Of You” and my thoughts are to fill the tree with baubles handmade by bereaved parents in memory of their babies or children.

We are planning a series of bauble making workshops at the Riverside Hotel in Kendal during September, October and November.

To attend a workshop

You can book your place on a workshop to make your bauble for £5 donation payable on the day, email us at to book your place telling us which date you wish to attend, who you will be making a bauble in memory of and their birthday or angelversary if you wish to include them on your bauble, and what colours you wish to use e.g. Pinks, Blues, or Whites.

For Postal Participation

If you would like a bauble made for you and have your baby or child remembered on our tree but cannot attend a workshop – for £5 + £3.50 P&P you can have a bauble lovingly hand made for you by one of our bereaved parents and after the festival we will post it out to you.

Our colour themes will be pinks, blues and whites,

Please make your £8.50 donation, per bauble, through our Virgin Money Giving Reminds Me of You Event page, stating in the message what colour theme you would like and the name of your baby/child and their date of birth and/or angelversary if you would like that included. Please remember to tick Gift Aid if applicable to help us raise funds.

Please also make sure you include your postal address.

October 15th International Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day + Global Wave of Light
We are very grateful to Scott and Claire for their generous hospitality in hosting us for our annual Remembrance Celebration. We invite you to join us for a very special evening remembering and celebrating all our babies and children gone to soon.
On this special date, we will light candles and be part of the global wave of light around the world. It will be an evening of remembering and honouring our babies, sharing and connecting with those who have travelled this path and those who help us to travel it. 
If you would like to come along, please join our event on Facebook - to help us prepare for accommodating you.

Doors open 6pm please come early to allow time for candle lighting and putting an angel on our remembrance tree in memory of your baby or child. 
There will be tea and coffee afterwards and time to talk and connect with each other.
We hope to see you there, message or email Val with any questions you may have, I will do my best to answer -

We understand that some of you may wish to join us for the Remembrance Celebration but be unable to attend - with this in mind we would like to offer you a way to include your precious babies too. If you send us their name in an email we will honour them by lighting a candle for them and speaking their name with all our babies during the ceremony.
United we honour our precious ones, together we help each other to heal.
Love and blessings, Val x x x
