Welcome and thank you for visiting our page, My name is Beverley and i am creator of Heavenly gowns UK.
Heavenly gowns UK was set up in February 2015. We are a not for profit organisation, we rely solely on donations of materials and financial contributions. We have no government funding.
The idea was to make beautiful outfits such as gowns,bonnets,nappies and wraps from donated wedding and other occasional dresses for babies born too soon or sleeping.
We have created these outfits to include in packs, Our packs also include a number of knitted and crochet items such as hats booties blankets and pockets along with two keepsake items which we feel are most important as one is kept with baby and one with mum which are exchange at their final farewell and mum and baby forever hold each others smell. Our packs are supplied to hospitals whom we work along side to provide these to bereaved parents to dress their little angels in a beautiful outfit and give them the dignity they so deserve. Not only do we supply hospitals but also deal with direct requests from parents and funeral homes.
Our packs are specifically designed for the individual needs of each baby loss. We provided several different sizes ranging from very early loss wraps/pockets up to full term loss gowns. These can accommodate boys/girls and unisex if the gender is not know due to very early loss.
Everything we provide is lovingly made by hand by our wonderful group of volunteers who devote their time money and materials for free to help provide a little comfort to bereaved parents at this unimaginable time. Our volunteers are based all over the country but come together as one via our facebook group (Heavenly gowns UK. knitters and sewers) Without this wonderful group of ladies what we do would not be possible which i thank them all for their hard work and dedication.
We are hoping to become a registered charity in the near future but need to raise £5000 first. until such times we will continue to give 100% in what we are doing now.
