A FAMILY fun day is being held on Broadwater Green on Sunday, May 31, to raise money for a charity that helps bereaved parents.

Jaimie Goldsmith, 28, of Rogate Road, Worthing, has organised the event in memory of her son, Louie, who was stillborn in February last year.

She said 4Louis had been a tremendous help, providing a memory box for keepsakes, for example, and she wanted to do something in return.

There will be a tug-of-war competition, face painting, stalls and performances from 10am to 4pm.

Jaimie said: “The memory box was wonderful, because we would never have thought of it ourselves.

“In March, 4Louis provided Worthing Hospital with camera equipment to created packages for families as well, which is brilliant.”

She said it made a big difference to have a record of the baby, such as footprints and photographs, something which many parents were not in a position to think of at the time because of the affects of bereavement.

The charity supplies memory boxes to hospitals,including Worthing, to support bereaved parents.

Please note the date of this family fun day event was incorrect in this week’s Herald, It will take place at Broadwater Green on Sunday, May 31, not tomorrow.
