Donation Time – Hunstanton Beach Clean & Theresa’s Tiny Treasures

Today we made 2 of 5 donations planed for this week and next week.

The 1st of today’s was to Sam Rutt of Barefoot SUP and Fitness. If your a lover of the ocean and beach where we live, then please come and join everyone volunteering on the 1st of April with a community beach clean.

Hunstanton Round Table are backing Sam with her efforts, and we have donated money to assist with the buying of equipment for the beach clean in Hunstanton.

The event will form part of the Surfers Against Sewage Big Spring Beach Clean Campaign. Barefoot SUP are working alongside Steve Murfet of Hunstanton Water Sports, Les Collinson of Hunstanton Kayaks and Hunstanton Sailing Club as fellow campaigners for cleaner beaches.

Sam said, “We are going to meet and take a nice stroll along the beach, collecting anything we find, and then afterwards check in at Hunstanton Sailing Club for a well earned drink (the bar will be open). I really do hope you can come and join us to give something back to a beach we all love and enjoy”

If you are interested in joining the beach clean you can find the Facebook event here.

Our second donation today was to Theresa’s Tiny Treasures.

We have donate £1600 of equipment to help Theresa with a this fantastic charity that she has set up. Theresa started Theresa’s Tiny Treasures in October 2015, the ‘treasures’ being the keepsakes and items which she could offer families.

Theresa’s Tiny Treasures is a unique baby bereavement charity for Norfolk providing professional quality baby bereavement photography, hand and footprints onto ceramic, plaster castings of hands and feet, made with love clothing for all stages of baby loss, blankets, quilts, hand made cloth nappies for babies from 12 weeks of pregnancy to term, miscarriage baby clothing and keepsakes, burial gowns made from wedding dresses, handmade baby bracelets and angel charms, laser engraved stars including all siblings, extra sets of ink free footprints for grandparents and other family members, hand and footprints into sand for bigger babies which are made into glass plaques.

Also provided are sibling toys and a sibling library which includes books for all ages to explain the loss of a sibling and why Mummy had an angel instead of bringing home a baby.

Theresa said, “It’s an honour to be able to change a photo a little to make it more acceptable for a family to share with others, it’s makes such a difference to people.
Sadly miscarriage and stillbirth is still not a subject which most people talk about so fundraising is so hard. I’ve had many people asking me why I do what I do…. I say ‘because it is so very needed, there is no pain worse than losing a longed for baby.’ Thank you to Hunstanton Roundtable for donating, it will make such a difference to the charity.”
