I have three married sons,10 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. I came across Cherished-gowns on my Facebook feed, and I thought it was a lovely idea.
At about the same time I suffered a mini stroke along with a heart problem and thought my world had come to an end. So one afternoon while feeling sorry for myself I decided to get In touch with Megan to be a volunteer and since then I have put my anxieties behind me and enjoyed being a volunteer for almost 2 years now.
I started by donating my own 43 year old wedding dress with my bridesmaid dress.
So Cherished has been a real help to me knowing all my makes are going to a good cause.
As well as sewing and knitting for Cherished I enjoy gardening and walking.

We had an amazing response to Yvonne Trimble's Story which went viral all over the world, as well as nearly all the UK media, here is the link to the ITV coverage, the Independent and The Daily Mail. We always need volunteers with Elaine's commitment and talent. Look at some of Elaine's lovely makes here, and see why our Angel gowns give bereaved parents a small degree of comfort
