The reason for doing this
On the 2nd January 2015 our hearts broke when our precious Louis went to sleep and never woke up. Louis was just 7 months old.
Every moment of every day I ask myself why this happened to such a happy and healthy little boy.
Who are the lullaby trust?
When I was at the hospital on the night Louis passed I was given a leaflet about the lullaby trust.
We took comfort in knowing there is a charity that offers an invaluable level of support and also an organisation that is working tirelessly to reduce the amount of babies dying from SIDS by promoting awareness, and funding lifesaving research.
WE NEED YOUR HELP
The Lullaby trust receives no government funding so relies totally on fundraisers campaigning for them so every penny they receive makes a huge difference to the tireless work they do.
As well as supporting bereaved families they fund ongoing research in the hope by 2020 the numbers of babies and toddlers that die from SIDS will be halved.
- 212 unexplained infant deaths occurred in England and Wales in 2014, a rate of 0.30 deaths per 1,000 live births. This follows the decreasing trend that has generally been seen over the last decade from 0.5 in 2005.
- 60% of these deaths were recorded as sudden infant deaths with the remaining 40% recorded as unascertained (where no other cause of death is recorded).
- Just over half (55%) of all unexplained infant deaths were boys in 2014 (117 deaths)
- The rate of infant deaths rose for mothers aged 20 to 24 and 25 to 29 in 2014 while the rate fell for all other age groups.
HOW TO HELP
I really want to raise as much money as I can in hope that one day Sudden Infant Death is something of the past and other families don’t have to go through the tragedy that we have to live every moment of every day.
I will of course keep you updated with our training and whether you buy a ticket to one of our events, donate a £1 or a £100, your support really does make a difference so thank you for reading our page and donating your hard earned money.
