A FAMILY fun day raised over £1,300.

Proceeds will go towards improving bereavement services at Airedale Hospital.

The Sunbeam Support Group, run by hospital midwives for bereaved parents, will also benefit.

The well-attended event – organised by Airedale midwife Gemma Sayer – included a cake sale, tombola, raffle, free children's activities, glitter tattoos, a bouncy castle and a visit from a fire engine.

There was a chance for visitors to discover more about hospital bereavement services offered to families following the loss of a child.

Information was displayed by national charity Remember My Baby and non-profit organisation Aidan's Elephants.

Gemma said: "I was inspired to organise the family fun day to raise awareness of the support that Airedale Hospital offers to families which have sadly lost a baby.

"The Sunbeam Support Group is an essential part of this and the money raised will allow us to offer extra memories and support in such a difficult situation."
