On Saturday 25th February The Guildhall in Chard will become home to a very special Barn Dance Featuring Ivor Hyde. In Aid of baby bereavement charity Towards Tomorrow Together, who support Chard Group Little Daffodils.
Four Chard women,Julz Scott, Tracy Coath, Sam Field and Gemma Green have teamed together to organise a Charity Event, in aid of an incredibly special charity where all proceeds go towards helping families who have had to say goodbye to their babies, whether it early pregnancy loss or death through infancy Towards Tomorrow Together hold no barriers on what support they offer. Pregnancy and Infant loss is the height of taboo, where people would rather be kept in silence (or cross the street), than to face what happens to families on a daily basis, actually several times a day.
Of course it is too sad for anyone’s hearts to hear, but for the families who have to endure the physical and mental pain, having a support network can be so important to help with the life long grief process. Of course NOT talking about it won’t cure baby loss, or make it go away, it only leaves the families.. YOUR friend, YOUR neighbour, YOUR family member in a lonely devastating place, feeling lost and confused.
Talking about it can save lives, saves the hurt which can lead to secondary losses too.
So, for one night, we are giving all the babies and children who couldn’t stay, their parents, their families a voice, a night to remember them and a night to bring smiles, a night where every one is welcome, children too. Tickets include a ploughman’s with Tea or Coffee (Squash for the children)and the bar will of course be open.
Don your checked shirts, your cow boy boots (or like me wellies), come and support this amazing event.
Tickets can be purchased at Eleos Cafe in Chard.
We each have a set of Tickets on us too, so please ask.
Raffle tickets too will go on sale this week.
We have some amazing prizes up for grabs, overwhelmed by the amount companies who have supported us.
Stay tuned to find out some of the prizes.
For such a small team, we have really worked hard in putting the event together.
We’re looking forward to having some fun and of course lots of dancing..
