Charlotte and Bernard McCauley have organised a fun day for children in aid of Féileacáin Stillborn and Neonatal Death Association of Ireland and to remember their baby daughter Rachael.

Charlotte and Bernard tragically had to say goodbye to their daughter Rachael last summer when she was born sleeping, or stillborn on July 2nd 2013.

The couple is hoping that the event will help to remove some of the stigma that can often surround stillbirths, and hope it will open up more discussions about stillbirths whilst also raising funds for Féileacáin Stillborn and Neonatal Death Association of Ireland – a not for profit organization that provides support for anyone affected by the death of a baby during or after pregnancy.

Charlotte has often spoken of the silence surrounding stillbirths, “Every parent should be proud of the baby they carried for so long, we may not have toddlers running around us here on earth but we do have angel babies in heaven looking over us and we should be proud to talk about them.”

The event has been organised for Saturday, June 28th in Ionad Naomh Padraig Dobhair (Gweedore) from 2.00pm – 5.00pm.

The cost is just €5.00 per family and there is a great variety of activities organised for the day including a face painter, an obstacle course, a games room and much more. A balloon release has also been organised for all the Angel Babies.
