A message from 2 of the ladies running this group:

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone from near and far who has supported, encouraged and helped us grow in the last few weeks in the lead up to our first fundraiser - we can very proudly announce that our Fundraiser Market was a success and we raised $1029.30c it was so lovely to meet everyone who came today and hear from those who couldn't. We were so lucky to have our managers, Sarah and Josie from Auckland come and help us and show their support, it was such a privilege to meet you 2 beautiful souls who do so much for the families of New Zealand - We are so very lucky to have you as our role models. Again, thank you endlessly for all your help, words, encouragement, love and of course all the laughs while you were here. Thank you so much also to the Stall Holders, Food Trucks, photographer & makeup artist, Kids Entertainment and all the other helpers behind the scenes who helped us to make this day a success - We truly couldn't have done it without you. We cant wait for Baby Loss NZ Canterbury to go from strength to strength. We are so pleased to offer our services to the families of Canterbury.
We have had such an awesome day and we are now having a few wines to celebrate such a fab event!!
All our love, Ashleigh and Isobel xxx
